    Thanks, I think I'll go for the 5300. Do I just have to unscrew the bottom panel to gain access to it?

    It's more the increased signal strength that I want. On an old Studio 1555 I had, it had the 5300 on it which had better range. (and then I spilt orange juice on it and insurance gave me another one)

    I forget how many antennas my 1558 had, but the 5300 card requires 3 antennas and you will waste it if you don't use all 3 antennas. Make sure you got 3 antennas before you pull the trigger, otherwise go for the 6200.

    Well when I bought a 1555 a year ago, it came with the 5300 card so I assume it would fit the 1558 as well. Hopefully.

    For the first time I kinda regret going for my Dell so early, just saw a Vaio E Series for £570 with i5, Blu-ray writer, 6GB RAM, ATI 5650, 1080p screen and a 500GB HDD. :(

    Yeah I have, no problems here.

    I don't know the weight of my laptop but it is very light. It feels like paper compared to my Inspiron 1520.
