    One thing to note is that you can find 802.11ac adapters for laptops fairly cheaply on eBay. Not as convenient for Macs, but most PCs are relatively easy to upgrade (I have one AC card in a Dell E6500 now, will be getting more). I paid $35 shipped for the Intel 7260.HMWG Wireless-AC 7260 card, now they’re $28 with free shipping.
