Perhaps they'd be more accurate if they renamed their Centrino chipset the "incompatible with other companies' Wi-Fi, especially Intersil" chipset. (To this day, they haven't fixed the nasty bugs which keep Centrino laptops from associating with the millions of access points that use the Prism II chipset.)

I'm not entirely certain that a transparent performance jump is of any benefit to the consumer. I would hope that the performance jumps are more radical and apparent when moving through the i3, i5 and i7 lineup.
