Dell no longer offer a WiFi card choice, at least in Europe and even in 
the US for their netbook lines.

Sony does ship Atheros WiFi cards by default, though, even on their 
budget lines (I have the EB 15" and the W netbook). The memory card on 
the netbook does not work, but that's a minor issue.
