Core 2 Duo MacBook Also Supporting 802.11n?

Continuing a recent trend, Apple appears to have included another draft 802.11n-compatible wireless card in their recently released Core 2 Duo based MacBook computers. According to ThinkSecret, the wireless chipset is the Atheros AR5008E, apparently the same series as is in the Core 2 Duo MacBook Pros. Apple first introduced draft 802.11n compliant chipsets with the Core 2 Duo iMac, however the iMac uses a Broadcom chipset.

Apple has yet to release any Mac OS X drivers to allow the full speed of the devices to be realized. It is currently thought that Apple's iTV will employ 802.11n.
