I’ve read recently that the Macbook Pro has issues with wifi signal, surmised to be caused by the aluminum case blocking the signal, or possibly due to faulty internal antennas. My 13″ Macbook desperately needs replacing (it owes me nothing, has been a workhorse for 4 years), and I’m leaning towards a 15″MBP. I’m concerned with what seems to be a not insignificant amount of instances of intermittent and not-easily-diagnosed wifi issues.
The aluminum case is of great interest to me, as the plastic case on my current laptop has many cracks, despite my loving care and attention. Also, my eyes beg for a larger screen and work area; I’ve actually toyed with the notion of the 17″, but require portability.
Is there a documented fix to this potential problem (that not every user seems to experience, which is troubling!)?
