Yeah. We're waiting for someone to actually get one.
802.11a scanning would be cool as well. How many 802.11a channels are there? I've never used it.

Word on the street is they are using the Intel Pro Wireless chipset, which if I recall already has linux drivers... so it shouldn't be *too* awfully hard to port them over.

From http://labs.pcw.co.uk/2006/01/apple_unviels_d.html:

FYI - The laptops are Centrino Duo - they support 802.11a/b/g and use the Intel PRO/Wireless chipset.
