New AirPort Ext, Time Cap.
In addition to its updates to the iMac, Mac Pro and Mac mini, Apple has also released new AirPort Extreme and Time Capsule peripherals. Both of the devices now support simultaneous 2.4 and 5GHz wireless connections, allowing the creation of separate networks, such as distinct 802.11n and 802.11b/g connections, or a Guest Network which restricts users to Internet connectivity.
The new AirPort Extreme router is officially listed at $179, but is priced at $159 on Apple's website. The revised Time Capsule, which doubles as a router and network-attached storage, continues to be sold in 500GB and 1TB capacities priced at $299 and $499, respectively.
