Thread: Airport Extreme

I'm looking in getting a PB 12" because I'm a cheap *******
I noticed it had airport extreme built-in and I was just wondering if it'd work with existing windows wireless networks. I bought a Linksys wireless data access point a while ago. It's based on the 802.11b standard...

It should be able to detect and connect to the signal. Tell us how it goes.

Got a 12" a few weeks ago, it's great isn't it?

Yea, alot of PC users says the screen is too small, but I think it's perfect for what a laptop should be, 1024x768 works perfect

Simple answer to that: get a bigger monitor.
I am so impressed that they've got 1024x768 on a 12" monitor, and you can actually read the text. My mum's Compaq is 1024x768, but that's 15"!

Yeah, I don't find the 12" display a problem at all, even for movies. I don't even notice when I'm using a 17" monitor vs my 12" PB, because I don't really notice a difference.
The 12" PB is the best laptop. Ever. Period.

Not to mention how easy it is to carry it around

Whoah! Sweet! Congradulations man! How's the wireless working???

It's awesome! I can get around 80kbps downstream while my other two PCs are using the internet connection at the same time!

Nice! I'm looking into the 12" too due to portability issues.
