Interesting topic, - but even if the card will fit physically, the main problem with the Intel 7260ac card is the missing driver support in Mac OS X. So far I know there is currently absolutely no Intel Wi-Fi driver available.

Therefore, on an iMac you will only get you Intel 7260ac card working under Linux or Windows operating system, - not Mac OS X. That doesn’t make a lot of sense for me. However, it makes absolutely sense if you are using a “Mac OS free” iMac computer…. ;)

Well I can confirm that the Intel 7260ac card (with Bluetooth 4.0) does NOT require an Intel only or Intel Haswell-based system. I installed it at an Acer Aspire One 721, AMD Athlon II Neo CPU based Netbook. It works with latest Intel drivers absolutely perfect!!
