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.

PS. Good work so far everyone, the few issues are nothing int he face of
what can now be done... plus it helps to keep the script kiddies from just
pwning networks ;-)
