Retrostone 2 without wifi?

So I saw someone had asked about this on the original Kickstarter page, but I didn't see a reply there.

Basically I'm really interested in getting a Retrostone 2 to play my old GBA games, but the problem is I have an internet addiction, so I have to limit which of my personal devices can use the internet?

1. Can Retrostone 2 surf the internet out of the box?

2. If it can, is there any way of permanently disabling the wifi on Retrostone or ordering one without wifi? I guess I could take it apart and take out the wifi chip?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

This wifi is not that strong that you can use it for surfing internet ... its mainly a gaming device so if you dont enable the desktop version ... you cant use it for surfing

Thanks. What do you mean by 'enable the desktop version'? Do you mean plugging an ethernet cable, monitor, mouse and keyboard into it?

No , there is desktop mode , where you can connect mouse and browse internet ... also as everything small its better to use desktop mode with a monitor if you really want to browse internet. So i think built in wifi should not be an issue to your internet addiction.
