Wireless SRX technology

I was checking the prices online for a Wireless-G router for a friend
of mine and I noticed the Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router with SRX.
Linksys advertises that this has a wider range than the standard
My friend lives in a condo in Somerville, and he wants to use wireless
for a new laptop in another room.  The standard Wireless-G can be
obtained for under $60 where the SRX is about $180.  My feeling is that
the SRX is a total waste of money unless he has a very big house or
wants to use the wireless outside, which I'm sure he will not. 

In any case, this leads to another related question. I have an older
wireless-B router that I use only when my daughter visits or on
occasion with my laptop. The router is downstairs and the signal is a
bit weak upstairs. I don't need the extra speed of the G router.  Is
the signal strength of the G routers stronger than the older B routers?
