I am planning on buying a Clevo (Pc Specialist) Optimus V
15.6 display
i7 4710
nvidia GTX 860M
main system drive Kingston hyperx 120 BG ssd
secondary 1TB seagate SSHD
inte; 802.11AC wireless with bluetooth 4

all the usual twiddly bits usb3 esata etc

the altrnative is an alienware 14
but tis £300 for a similer if not lower spec

my questions are as follows

Q. is 802.11 AC backward compatible to N and G routers

Q. is there any benefit in video Editing of the higher spec 860M over say a lesser GT 750 in the macbook pro..

as much of the macbooks performance seems to fall short of the high end nvidia graphics

1. yes its backwards comparable. But its really that the 802 is a b g n and ac, not just ac

2. any 'Maxwell' gpu will be better than equivalent 'Kepler' 100%. Video editing barely uses the gpu if its a 'GeForce' as that's gaming drivers. But Maxwell includes cuda 3.0 vs 2.0 which gives it a nice boost. plus the Maxwell will be 1/2-3/4 the power draw which means better battery and less heat.
