Hello, i recently purchased a sony T13 ultrabook with 3rd gen Intel® Core™ i7-3517U processor (1.90GHz / 3.00GHz with Turbo Boost). I was wondering if this ultrabook is widi compatible? Checking the compatibilty page it seems like there are none of the new ivy bridge processors listed, i assume just hasnt beent updated. The other thing i saw that was required was a compatible wifi adapter, which isnt listed on the purchase page (i havesnt received the sony yet) and i was wondering that if it does not come with one of the listed wifi adapters, if i replace it with one, will it then work? thanks in advance!
To answer your question, WiDi must be pre-installed and enabled by the system manufacturer; if it is not advertised to support WiDi even thought you meet the required hardware it might not work.
To avoid any inconvenience in the future, if you are planning on upgrading your wireless adapter, you need to know that various Intel wireless adapters are subject to country-specific legal regulations, it is why Intel recommends that the system manufacturer be the one in charge of changing the wireless adapter, you can check more detailed information in the following link:
