Apple It just goes to show you how much people love Apple. Would anyone ever post an article about SanDisk's five worst products, or Toshiba's five worst products? We complain because we love, so stop yer whinin' fanboys. Wired compiled an entertaining list from the Apple rogue's gallery. I spent a few minutes trying to think of my own list of crummy Apple products, and I realized that they were mostly things that I hated not because they weren't good, but because they didn't live up to the hype, or my high expectations, or they were just too ahead of the curve. The QuickTake, mentioned by Wired, is a great example of that. Too early.

Ok, its clear some people like the express. Guess I misjudged its popularity.

But still:

I actually get 100Mbit over my Wifi-network. Not many Wifi-routers will give you that.


Uhm are you saying that other 80211 N routers don't provide 100Mbit? That's not my experience. They all seem to be pretty much the same. If you're comparing it to a 80211 G or B device, then, yeah, they can't go as fast.

I'm actually saying that the N-routers I have tried don't give full 100Mbit. I have tried with my brothers Linksys router which I do believe only supports 2.5GHz but I got about 50Mbit against that one. A friend tried with one of those expensive D-Link routers that have two antennas and got between 50-60 Mbit.

I will admit I have only tried with Mac's so it may perhaps work better with other wifi-cards?

I think I will save all the results I get with different routers in the future, but of all the ones I have tested so far, against my Mac, the Airports have been almost twice as fast.
