What about an ivy bridge one? If it will not work perfectly, then what all will work, and what will not work ? Is there any way to make it work perfectly ?
At this point the laptop you are talking about (4530s with Ivy) is a Unicorn. Nobody but you has seen one...

Well this has been handy and thanks for putting up the FAQ, Had i have read it I wouldnt of done so many annoying posts...Is 1333mhz RAM the fastest it can take, no way to get 1600mhz? also I see that 8gb is the max ram.. has anyone had success with getting more to work? I've attached a pic of Wifi card in the one I hope to purchase, I'm almost certain its not compatible but any input would be great.

I think some people have installed more than 8GB of 1600Mhz RAM and have gotten it to "work." You should search and see what you find.

Ralink Wifi is not supported by OS X.

Hello, I do understand that if my 4530 has a Realtek wireless card, then I have to replace it. However, can I just buy a USB WIFI Dongle to get WiFi functionality back?

And if so, then what dongles are compatible with Mac OS Lion/Hackintoshes. As in, which ones are plug and play?

You can but you must make sure it has OS X Lion/ML drivers. Generally, you'll find that information on the manufacturer site or on the site you're shopping from.

Note: It is probably just as cheap and as easy to replace the half-mini PCIe WiFi card (you just have to find an AR5B195 w/ HP branding). And I would think there is some benefit to using the WiFi antenna built in to the screen bezel.

I bought a USB wifi card but when I go to the Apple App store to buy ML it says an unknown error has occurred. Has anyone found a way around this? If not how do I upgrade to ML?

Not on Lion. The 4540s is completely supported with Mountain Lion. See the ML probook forum: http://www.tonymacx86.com/hp-probook/
