I took a look around the net and found video of disassembly of
the notebook. It's quite straightforward, and it uses a normal
miniPCIe wifi/bluetooth card.
You could replace it with an Intel or Atheros unit -- the most
complicated bit is attaching the screw-down antennae, which
requires good eyesight and a steady hand.
