Add Acer to the list of companies offering a non-compliant wireless adapter: The Acer Ferrari notebooks will feature Broadcom’s Intensi-fi Draft N chips. As noted many time before: Not a real standard. No guaranteed upgrade. And, to boot, no user-provided way to upgrade an internal card on the unit. Thus, if you want a real Final N product, you may not be able to use this laptop with that standard.
