Apple Knows About the Air's Dodgy Wi-Fi and is Replacing Borked Ones

By Chris Mills on at

A few days ago, we pointed out that the new MacBook Air's Wi-Fi doesn't quite seem to be the many-megabit-transfer Utopia Apple promised when they launched the thing. Now, it looks like Apple agrees -- according to an internal memo obtained by 9to5Mac, there's a blanket replace order on MacBook Airs with Wi-Fi issues. Does this mean we're holding it right after all?

According to 9to5Mac's 'sources', broken Airs are being 'captured' and sent back to Apple so that they can work out what's wrong. Even if they don't know what's wrong, that means they're entertaining the possibility that it could be a hardware flaw -- even more reason to change your Air while you're still within the 90 days Apple Care policy.

Now if you'll excuse me, I've got a Genius bar appointment to attend to. [9to5Mac]
