    Hi Joe,

    Let me start by pointing out that Airpot Express does not currently support 802.11ac. This model supports 802.11a/b/g/n protocols. That being said, and to answer your question, yes you'll need a new computer the take advantage of 802.11ac. Not all new computers support ac yet though. For example, at the time of writing, the only Apple computers to have this capability are the new Mid 2013 MacBook Air.

    Hope this helps,
