    Wondering if its worth changing wireless routers from my current Asus N to the new Airport Extreme to take advantage of 802.11ac in the new Air that I'm fixing to buy.
    Any examples/tests of range and speed yet? Looked on youtube but nothing posted there yet.

    If your Air is only talking to the internet, then it depends on the speed of the internet connection.

    For example 902.11N is faster than my internet connection so it wouldn't make sense for me to upgrade.

    However, if you are having issues with your current wireless base then you might as well get the latest to better accommodate future changes to your computer and network setup.
