October 27, 2014 in Hardware (E)

[prMac.com] Wichita, Kansas - QuickerTek has brought 802.11 ac/n/a high-speed networking and Blue Tooth 4.0 LE to older model Apple Mac's. Using the same chipset that Apple uses in newer laptops and desktops, users of the new mCards can be confident that it works right out of the box - now and in the future. For less than $150, the mCard delivers 802.11ac networking and Bluetooth 4.0 LE for Apple Mac's..

To meet the high speed networking needs of a broad set of older Mac users, QuickerTek has developed three products. Among the features included are 802.11 ac networking and Bluetooth for compatibility with the new Apple Handoff. Now users can use the latest features from Apple, on MacBooks as old as 2007 models. Even 17-inch iMacs can use the mCard.

mCard is user installable using only a screwdriver and/or Torx driver. Software drivers are supplied. QuickerTek also has links for installation video for those users who want to see the process before they buy.

Now MacBook users aren't left behind, to muddle along without the latest Apple features. mCard adds 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac - 5.8GHz, 1 gigabit per second networking, Bluetooth 4.0 and compatibility with the latest Apple OS.

mCard works perfectly with common wireless networking equipment. And users can also choose to add higher-power antennas, should their needs not be met by the internal stock antenna.

* 2007-2012 15-inch MacBook Pros (does not work in Unibody models)
* Late 2009, 2010, 2011 27-inch iMacs
* 17-inch iMacs
* 2007-2012 20-inch Intel MacBook Pro

"Our highly mobile users have been pestering us for a solution to replacing a perfectly reliable MacBook just to get the latest networking speeds. Sure - that would be a huge waste. The QuickerTek team has developed the mCard to solve this dilemma. And it's so easy to install and use. We use the same chips that Apple puts in the latest MacBooks, so you're not doing some kind of risky Frankenstein thing to your old reliable MacBook. mCard delivers the fastest networking possible, not to mention Bluetooth 4 - which makes Handoff work for older MacBooks," said Rick Estes, QuickerTek president.
