    I'm just wondering but would this MBP be able to get an N upgrade? I'm just wondering becuase I'll probably be getting rid of my wireless G and be getting the airport wireless N by apple. This is the link for the MBP just tell me yes or no! http://www.macmall.com/macmall/shop/detail.asp?dpno=7133534&Redir=1&description=Apple-15.4"%20MacBook%20Pro%20Intel%20Core%202%20Duo%202.16GHz%20Notebook%20W/GLOSSY%20DISPLAY-MacBook%20Pro

    Yes, all Core 2 Duo MacBook Pros have the 802.11n cards.

    So if you were to buy a new airport extreme it comes with the enabler for your computer(s)... right?

    the point is how cheap can apple be that you spend 2000+ on a computer then have to go through the hassle to pay them a measly 2 bucks to make it work has to be the biggest rip off in the computer industry, beside their 750 dollar 4gb memory upgrade for the mbp

    Well not really. The point is the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. which requires the proper recognition of income for reporting purposes.

    Basically you can't sell a product, recognize income for it now, and deliver the product (or part of - 802.11n) later.

    Yes, but if Apple said they were using 802.11n from the start, it would of been easier!
