After the introduction of the iPhone and the Apple TV, it isn’t surprising that the release of a new AirPort Extreme Base Station slipped through the cracks. In fact, I had not heard a thing about it until I went browsing through the updated Apple Store.
As you can see, the station has taken on that whole Mac Mini vibe that Apple seems to be so fond of these days, but there is more to the update than a new look.
- 802.11n wireless technology which gives it 5x more speed than its predecessor
- Multiple antennas offer 2x the range of previous versions
- WAN, 3 Ethernet ports, and USB
- Works with Apple TV
The New AirPort Extreme Base Station will ship in February for $179.99
