Description:
It has an Intel GPU which works fine but the Internal WiFi is Intel as well. I don't remember if it could be replaced or not. The WiFi card can be removed but the BIOS prevents you from replacing the WiFi card with one not approved by the vendor. Here's what the BIOS says when replacing it with a card compatible with the ath5k driver: 104-Unsupported wireless network device detected. System Halted. Remove device and restart.
