I know it will work well with my macbook air and iphone but i want to make sure i dont have any issues with the rest of my stuff.

    Wired or Wireless?

    They should all work without issue wired. As for wireless...

    PS3 sucks on Wireless. I don't know why, it just does. This is with any wireless router though, not just AEBS.

    XBox 360 needs the wireless adapter, but it shouldn't have any issues.

    Dell laptop should be just fine on 2.4ghz, however, I just bought the new Airport with dual band and my PC's in the house can't see the 5ghz network. They don't even see the SSID being broadcast. My MBA sees it, but due to location, the 2.4ghz is actually faster and is always selected on bootup.
