As it stands, my Vaio Z picks up all 6 while the ASUS G74SX picks up all six as well. The N53SV on the other hand sees 4 while the Samsung Series 9 I have for an upcoming review sees...well, a lot less than that.
Sounds like a great idea! Make sure to include the brand of wireless adapter in the laptops too. I've noticed that you generally get three different makes Intel, Realtek, and Broadcom. I've had ok success with Broadcom but great success with Intel.
