    Which router?
    Last night I ordered a Macbook Pro, the one with the Airport Express 802.11n card and I want to know if the apple Airport Extreme router is the best suitable for my laptop for GAMING. That basicly also asks if the apple router that is $179.99 is the best one I can get for my Macbook Pro. Im wondering how many channels the router comes with since its not listed on the apple website, and if there is another router that will be better for the wireless 802.11n card in my Macbook Pro.

    Texas, where else?
    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '14 1.8 i7 8GB 10.11; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.11; 6S
    I bought this one - router is at the opposite end of the house - have spent considerable time playing WoW - have had no issues with connectivity (at least none related to the router - my service provider is another story)

    and it's nice looking device
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

    LOL. I have no idea how your going to convince me differently. For the specs I got on my Macbook Pro (2.4ghz core 2 duo, 256 gddr3 8600m GT, 2gb ddr 667mhz) it was 1000$ cheaper then the alienware i was originally going to order, it comes with a better OS, I found out the hard way that these laptops run 100 x better then windows laptops, and Im absolutely in love with the way it looks and feels. Oh and did I mention i can partition a drive and install windows on it? Oh and the new "high-tech" games that i WONT be bothering to install on the laptop can be ran by my mammoth-of-a-beast pc? I only play WoW occassionally and Ultima Online... and if a Macbook (non-pro) can play wow better then my cousins PC im convinced my Macbook Pro can handle just about anything I throw at it.
