Odds and Ends: Putting 802.11n hardware in Core Duo Macs; Apple Knowledge Base updates

Putting 802.11n hardware in Core Duo Macs 802.11n-ready hardware is only built into the following Macs:

  • MacBook Pro with Intel Core 2 Duo
  • MacBook with Intel Core 2 Duo
  • Mac Pro with AirPort Extreme option
  • iMac with Intel Core 2 Duo (except the 17-inch, 1.83GHz iMac)

However, MacBidoulle has posted (warranty-voiding) instructions for transplanting 802.11n cards from Mac Pros to older Core Duo-based Intel-based Macs. It remains to be seen whether third parties or Apple will begin offering the card for separate purchase.
