Inspiron - true 802.11g centrino?

Discussion in 'Dell' started by Richard Lewis, Oct 9, 2004.

  1. I've read in a few places that the Inspiron isn't a true centrino owing to
    the fact that Dell use 802.11g cards rather than an integrated wi-fi
    chipset. Any truth or significance in this?

    The Centrino "marketing label" from Intel. It's old enough that 802.11g
    didn't exist, so including it 'breaks' the name.

    Ignore it.

    Exactly - Centrino is not a processor, as many believe but a label (as Tom
    indicates) that encompasses the CPU, Chipset and 802.11b card - TOGETHER.
