Hello,

I've read some threads here that didn't answer entirely to my questions (references at the bottom of this post), mostly because the topics I've read address MacOS High Sierra.

I am willing to buy an ASUS Vivobook S510UQ and planning to run SPECIFICALLY MacOS Sierra. High Sierra is not an option due to compatibility issues with audio applications and hardware I use. I couldn't find a few info about this one:

- What is the model of the internal Wifi card?
- Is the Wifi card compatible with MacOS Sierra or should it be replaced?
- In case the answer to the above question is yes, will opening the laptop to swap the wifi card invalidate the warranty or can the wifi card be accessed easily?
- Are there any known issues with this specific laptop?

Most laptops come with incompatible WiFi. You should expect that you'll need to replace it.

Thanks RehabMan. I am aware of that. I wonder, though, if any user has reliable data about this specific laptop's compatibility.
You might use search and/or google.

Thanks again, but I came here after a thorough research both here (as stated in the opening message) and on Google and I couldn't find anything useful, therefore I felt like asking here.
