QuickerTek has introduced the QCard2
, an 802.11ac Wi-Fi upgrade for older versions of the 13-inch MacBook Air or 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro. Instead of an external adapter, the QCard2 is a PCIe card that replaces the native AirPort card. Two different versions of the card are available: a two-port card for the Air, and a larger three-port card for the Pro.
Both cost $149, and require OS X 10.8.4 or later. Each also comes with T5 Torx and pentalobe screwdrivers. For a limited time, the QCard2 is being included in several bundles with QuickerTek's six-antenna acHex upgrade for Apple's AirPort and Time Capsule routers.
