Well you can now pay the $1.99 fee to update your Airport card in your MacBook, iMac, or Mac Pro to the new 802.11n standard. Here is the list of macs that have the hardware installed currently:
- MacBook Pro with Intel Core 2 Duo
- MacBook with Intel Core 2 Duo
- Mac Pro with AirPort Extreme option
- iMac with Intel Core 2 Duo (except the 17-inch, 1.83GHz iMac)
If you are planning on purchasing the new Airport Extreme Base Station in February when it launches, you won’t need to purchase this $1.99 add-on, it comes included for free.
Personally, I’d wait to see if this hits the torrent sites, or I know a few people who have pre-ordered the Base Station. There shouldn’t be much benefit without a 802.11n enabled router, and I don’t know of any near me.
