"The machine comes with integrated support for wireless networking including Wi-Fi and its faster cousin IEEE 802.11a. While Apple has embraced Wi-Fi and its follow-up technology IEEE 802.11g, Jobs is on record as saying he considers 802.11a to be a dead end."
Of course it's a dead end. 802.11(a) technology is incompatible with the prevailing 802.11(b) frequency band, unlike the PowerBook's 802.11(g).
See the Satellite P25 Key Features on the latter Web site. It says that the Satellite includes the following:

There's no mention of 802.11(g). Who would want to use an incompatible technology when a compatible one, equally fast, is available?
