I am a big fan Intel wifi because their drivers are upstream (part of
vanilla kernel).  What this means is that there should not be anything
you need to do to get wireless working.  My experience with 8.04 (I have
not upgraded to 8.10 yet) has been very good with a variety of Intel
WiFi adaptors.

I would not use the Intel audio device for recording, but it is adequate
for mixing and arranging while on the go.
