If you ever want a laptop with excellent wireless antennas, get an HP/Compaq. My dad has an HP; mom has a Compaq. They blow away the 12" Apple PowerBook (from 2003) with an Airport Extreme. Despite the addition of two wireless networks in the neighborhood from last summer, I can't get a consistent connection from inside... even with the aluminum foil. Looks like it'll be another summer of trading mosquito bites for bandwidth. Also, dad switched cellphones with me until his mobile gets unlocked, so there goes the Flickr activity.
