In Pictures: Macbook Pro delivers blazing speed in Gigabit Wi-Fi test

All five tested products validate the superior throughput of 802.11ac

MacBook Pro The MacBook Pro with Retina display comes in two different screen sizes: 13-inch starting at $1,299 and15-inch starting at $1,999. It's loaded with Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks. Our test unit ran a 2.4 GHz Intel Core i5 processor and was loaded with 4 GB of RAM.This MacBook Pro doesn't include an Apple AirPort card. The Wi-Fi adapter is built into the laptop itself. Apple doesn’t provide many details on the Wi-Fi specs, but it is Wi-Fi Certified. The MacBook Pro was our top performer, which wasn’t a surprise since it has three spatial streams, whereas the other devices in this test only have one or two streams. The MacBook Pro delivered a maximum throughput of 463 Mbps and an average of 318 Mbps.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
