“We expect lots of devices with 802.11ac embedded by Christmas,” said Mr. Lo, telling us briefly that Asus already had one laptop with the technology announced last week at Computex.

Meanwhile, the first routers are now landing in Australia, with Netgear launching the initial 802.11ac model R6300, which should arrive in stores this week.
