Apple silently Acknowledges MacBook Air WiFi Problems

If you couldn't resist one of the new MacBook Air ultrabooks from Apple (and you wouldn't be alone, as it's one of the most desirable computers, offering enough computer power with an ultra long battery life), then you might find yourself in a awkward situation as there are an increasing number of reports of WiFi connection problems. While Apple still hasn't officially acknowledge it, it has instructed Apple Store staff to  "capture" problematic MacBook Air computers should they come across one of those units.

I find it funny for Apple to use the word "capture" instead of issuing a recall, because it makes me imagine MacBook Air computers evading capture at all costs, like if they were trying not to get fixed. But in any case, it's better for everyone that Apple is replacing those units instead of plainly denying there's anything wrong with it... like they did with the network / SIM card problem I (and lots others) had with the iPhone 4S, and that went un-acknowledged for month.

So, if you have one of the latest generation MB Air, be sure to thoroughly test your WiFi connection and contact Apple for a replacement if you find something wrong with it. Better be safe than sorry.
