small victory for Macbook CD owners

I always felt a little ripped that I bought the core duo right BEFORE they released the C2D. Partly because of the 802.11n card (I thought it'd be impossible to upgrade). But now you can use a MacPro card! I'm totally going to do this when I get an airport.

I had bought the core duo a month before they announced the c2d..I was so mad. I went to Detroit to fly out on business and had it stolen in the security check point. Long story short my company replaced it and I got the new c2d. It was a bitter sweet moment. The N cards are fabulous, I can pick up public wireless like no bodies business, even compared to the duo macbooks.

Okay, so I know that performing this upgrade myself would void my Applecare, what about if I get a AASP to perform the upgrade, would it still void my warranty, and how much do you think it would cost?

Well I saw a few on eBay or any AASP should be able to order it for you, but I'm not entirely confident that I can do this myself, I'm afraid I might screw up somewhere. And I seriously doubt the Apple store will do it for you.

As long as there's no soldering involved...

It seems like it'd be relatively easy. One great trick I heard of involves double sided tape and labels so you know which screw came from where (especially that Motherboard screw they mention). The only thing I'd really be worried about is getting the old card out without damaging it incase the install has to be reversed.
