BearExtender Turbo brings 802.11ac WiFi to older Macs

Starting today, BearExtender is finally making its 802.11ac WiFi adapter available to Apple laptop and desktop owners who are missing out on the novel wireless standard. Much like the company’s BearExtender 1200, the Turbo is also designed to add WiFi functionality to Mac computers.

BearExtender today announced the availability of BearExtender Turbo($79.97, special launch pricing on Amazon of $69.97), which is a high-speed USB Wi-Fi adapter for Mac that operates at up to 867 Mbps on the 5 Ghz 802.11ac band. While only 2013 model MacBook Airs, MacBook Pros and iMacs come with built in 802.11ac support, the BearExtender Turbo makes it possible to give older Macs a way to take advantage of 802.11ac routers like the 2013 AirPort Extreme and Time Capsule.
