Both HP and Dell have announced that their laptop lines will 
start to carry

My Toshiba Tecra 8200 has the Orinoco Silver card built-in.

802.11b technology built into them.  With Windows XP adding 
more native
support for 802.11b, it'll be interesting to see how the laptops are
configured by default.  Historically, the default would be 
that the 802.11b
is enabled and running.  As part of dealing with all the 
major security

I can't comment on the default issue.  The customized NT4 image delivered on my laptop had the WiFi card disabled by 
default.  Enabling it under NT4 has caused me nothing but problems.  I've ordered another drive so that I can install 
other OS's for booting into a penetration testing configuration.
