Question Broadcom HD support with Mini 9 & MacOS - 01-02-2010, 02:26 AM

Seems that the Broadcom HD module will have MacOS support

crystalhd-for-osx - Project Hosting on Google Code

Wondered what others thought about this in the Mini 9 with Leopard / S Leopard?

I'm happily running 10.5.8 and will probably stay there for quite a while, unless this is SL only support.

I'd be happy to remove my wireless card and replace it with the Broadcom module, if i could still use a USB WLAN and try to install it internally.

Anyone have any recommendations for USB WLAN - UK based but ebay/hk/china is fine too!

Potential downsides?
Suppose the WLAN performance might be reduced compared with the dell installed card.
Reduced battery life.
More heat.
not sure if this is on wrong forum? if it is can mods pls move or let me know and i'll repost, thanks
