Noticed a post on a tech site about Apple having slipped 802.11n hardware into recent Mac hardware. How would I know if the Mac Pro I have has 802.11n support? I checked the System Profiler but the AirPort Card Info isn't specific. Purchased within the last three weeks.

Reading card type as AirPort Extreme (0x14E4, 0x87)

I noticed that too. However when I booted in Vista, I noticed that the wireless card shows up a .11n?

I would like to know as well.

Yes. As far as I know, all Core 2 Duo and Xeon Macs have them.

If that's confirmed mduell, I'm one happy camper and can't wait for the Apple TV and Airport Extreme to ship. Hopefully they'll go out earlier than expected.
