Macbook pro 4,1 wireless

31 July 2009 - 07:11 PM

Has anyone else experience any problems with the Broadcom BCM43xx 1.0 (

My macbook pro wireless absolutely sucks with this card. I have another MBP with an Apple identified wifi card and it works great. The 10.5.7 update destroyed what little success i hadwith the wireless and now sitting 2 feet from the router it will still drop connection. The is a 10.5.2 "driver" for the card.

Has anyone else had this problem or know of anyway to solve the problem?

apple support discussions have no answers...

CPU thoughts

Just wondering what your opinion was on intel cpus. My main goal was to get the i7, it is fast and new to the market... but the price (approx. 1600USD) that the machine would set me back i keep thinking i should just hold out and get a macpro, even if its a refurb from apple.

The machine would be used mainly for gaming and then school work. My question is how long do you think the dual core processors will be able to run games (supcom 2, diablo 3, starcraft 2) coming out in the next year? and what about the core2quads?
