    Hey Everyone,
    With all this speculation about new macs and new mac accessories, does anyone believe we will see 802.11ac in the new MacBook Pros? I know that 802.11ac is far off from the market, but Apple put 802.11n chips in Macs before they were released. Maybe Apple will do that now and we will have to pay for drivers to unlock the 802.11ac. What do you guys think.

    I highly doubt it. Apple is rarely ever first to do something and seeing as how the big networking companies haven't touched 802.11ac, I seriously doubt Apple would this early.

    I think it is a possibility personally. They had draft n for quite some time before it became a standard.

    yes, but when Apple introduced draft-n, there were several draft-n routers available. Apple will not introduce draft ac unless there is a purpose
