This is my first post on this forum... and considering the issues I had finding a good wireless adapter and general laptop to run BT5r3 on, I thought I would post some good news on a new laptop I purchased and setup for pen. testing.
The Acer Aspire S3 series with the Atheros AR5BWB225 Wireless adapter works flawlessly out of the box. This seems like a great machine so far, with an Intel Core i7 chip, 4GB of RAM, 250GB SSD drive, and 8 hour battery life. Only thing it is missing is a wired ethernet adapter (and a backlit keyboard for late night work :-) )
Anyway, just thought I would share this for those of you looking into which laptops are a good fit for BT5.
btw: Dual booting with Win7 and also running in VMWare Player inside Win7 - all 64bit.
