    Get the Intel if at all possible. Most of the time, it comes with Atheros and the most awful version of the driver. :/
    Read the User's Manual for more info.

    Asus seems to use Intel in certain configurations of a given model line, and Azurewave in others. Since a WLAN card swap is one of the easiest cheapest upgrades you can do, I wouldn't let that spec determine your purchase. Find the configuration that has all the other hardware specs you want, and if it happens to have an Atheros card, just order an Intel and swap it out.
