You can get the 5100 to work just fine if you have a look around, it seems to work pretty well in my HP DV3505 (£500), infact I'm pretty impressed with it.Quote:
I'm currently looking at Dell Latitude e5400 or one of the ThinkPads. However, please correct me if I'm wrong, and I hope I am, Intel WiFi 5100 and 5300 cards do not seem to be supported by BackTrack and the Graphics Chip cannot be fully utilized (i.e. achieve it's natural resolution).
I do recomend you look at ubuntu and learn how to setup and use the tools included in backtrack, it'll be far more beneficial to you, it was for me. :)
