QuickerTek brings fast 802.11AC wireless to MacBook Air or Pro

Finally, 802.11ac wireless comes to the Apple MacBook Air and Pro laptops. Replacing the stock wireless card, QuickerTek's new QCard2 provides all of the speed to some of the slightly older MacBook Pros and Airs. It goes in the standard wireless card socket, so users don't sacrifice a USB or other external connection port. For only $149 USD, Apple MacBook users get all the wireless speed available from any 802.11ac. Hit jump for the full details.

----Press Release----

802.11 ac wireless is fast - as much as twice the speed of the previous 802.11 n wireless of the built-in MacBook wireless card. This high-speed wireless provides streaming video, video conferencing with no hiccups, fast media file downloads and nearly instant web browsing.

 

QuickerTek makes the upgrade easy. Any MacBook Pro or Air running MacOS X 10.8.4  and a PCIe bus, (which includes most newer MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models) is a candidate. The QCard2 package comes with complete instructions (additional instructions are also available on the QuickerTek website). The QCard2 also comes with all the tools necessary to install the upgrade. Thanks to the engineers at Apple, and their well thought out design, it's very easy to install the QCard2. And by doing it yourself, you save money - no "hidden costs" for repair shop labor.

 

The QuickerTek acHex antenna upgrade brings the wireless signal strength of 6 external antennas to the Apple AirPort Base Station and Time Capsule products. This combination provides a powerful wireless system for home or office and are natural upgrades providing a complete wireless speed update.

 

For all those users who bought a MacBook with 802.11n wireless, the QCard2 is a quick and easy fix. Instead of suffering with slow wireless, those users can now upgrade and continue to use the MacBook that is ideal in every way except wireless speed.

The QCard2 is currently part of a money-saving bundle. For a limited time, the acHex 6-antenna upgraded Apple Base Station or Apple Time Capsule is bundled with the QCard2.  

Limited Time QCard2 Offers:

* QCard2 and acHex upgrade for customer's Apple AirPort Base Station or Apple Time Capsule Extreme $298

* QCard2 and acHex upgrade for new Apple Time Capsule $497
