Yeah, it's a mini-pci card.  When I first got this `book, I was using 
this card alot, but I have since built a wireless lan here; 
airport+linksys wpc11 (cheap, but limited range). Since school starts in 
1 month, I will probably be using it more. If it fails me then, I will 
certainly pick up an Intel.
