New AirPort Extreme and Time Capsule Offer Built-In Dual-Band Networking

Glenn Fleishman:

With Tuesday’s update to the AirPort Extreme Base Station and Time Capsule, you no longer need to make a choice or connect two different base stations. The revised models offer simultaneous dual-band networking at the same price as previous models: $179 for the Gigabit Ethernet AirPort Extreme, $299 for a Time Capsule with a 500 GB drive, and $499 for a 1 TB Time Capsule. (The terabyte pricing seems ridiculous given that high-end 1 TB drives are now retailing for under $100.)
