Keep in mind, the AC speed is only available on the 5ghz band, and really will only help speedwise for internal network traffic (unless its replacing something like b only equipment).

It would also help in an external network assuming you have (lucky) Google Fiber as your ISP

I think that's debatable. Most people care about download speed, and there are many services and sites that max out at a lower speed.

Don't your devices have to support "ac" in order for it to work?

Work at full speed, yes. It is backwards compatible, but I'd think slower devices on the 5ghz band would also slow ac devices down.

exactly, but only "g" devices will slow it down

I heard last week that "802.11ad, aka WiGig" was just around the corner and most should skip "802.11ac" altogether and just wait for "ad"... 

Just my .02

Though the fastest band in ad is 60ghz, so devices will need to be in the same room as the access point.

FWIW, the newer MacBooks Air are shipping with the "ac" standard

My advice is to wait till the end of this year.  All devices which are ac "standard", are not standard.  It's still pre-ratification.  Many of the current ac devices won't be able to upgrade via firmware to the more exciting features of ac.  Phase 2 which is slated to roll out some time at the end of this year brings to the table the ability to support simultaneous transmissions from multiple wireless clients on the same AP.  In addition, more of the 5 GHz channel space is slated to be rolled out during phase 2.

 

Also, slower devices won't slow ac devices per say from the literal sense.  AC brings to the table additional channel space even in this initial roll out where the ac devices shouldn't have to compete or share channel space with non ac 5 GHz devices.  Now if you look at overall performance, technically, the non ac 5 GHz devices can slow the ac devices due to the wait time necessary for free air time to communicate with the AP due to the half duplex nature of current wireless technology.  This is why the phase 2 release is such a big deal.  But this all really depends on the network traffic and the number of wireless clients associated with said AP.
