    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Compatible with Mac OS X after some hacking with IOBluetoothFamily.kext. Changed to it from incompatible Intel Wi-Fi in Lenovo Y580 laptop to make it Hackintosh MacBook.

    Cons:

    Doesn't have Bluetooth combo.

    OtherThoughts:

    I've bought this item to change with native Intel one in Lenovo Y580 laptop to make it fully functional with Wi-Fi usage available. That's because it has AR9285 Atheros chip, which is compatible with Mac OS X after some kext editing. It hasn't Bluetooth radio, but the laptop has one soldered on it's motherboard. So the laptop remaining fully operational in Mac OS X and Windows too, as well as in Linux.

    Bottomline:

    Very useful for hackintosh laptop.
