“Apple Inc. this week began to unleash the next-generation of Apple Wi-Fi, with the first shipments of its AirPort Extreme 802.11n Wireless Base Station making their way to select online customers and company retail stores,” AppleInsider reports.
AppleInsider reports, “If you’re like us, you probably placed an order for one of these promising wireless network performance enhancers during the week of Macworld. And if you’re like us, you’re probably still waiting for that order to ship.”
“Even though our online order was placed way back when, it’s not slated to leave Taiwan until around February 14. At the same time, however, we were able to swing by a local Apple retail store an pluck one off the shelf,” AppleInsider reports.

Why is everyone using the name Apple Inc? They didn’t use Apple Computer, Inc when that was the company’s name.
Just use Apple.
We currently have a Linksys router with our cable modem plugged into the router. It gives me access to 1 printer because there are no USB ports on the router. If I bought a Airport Extreme could I use a hub and plug in multiple devices? Like 2 printers and an external harddrive for wireless backup?

No wonder we Mac users were recently called Macsturbators. Pictures of retail box opening, starting with box before and AFTER shrink wrap removal! What’s next? Sunday morning drives to nearest Apple Store for iMass, complete with live video stream from 1 Infinite Loop?
Folks, just open the darn box and start using what’s in it. Spare the rest of humanity detailed shots of power supplies, will you?
MDN MW: “food”, as in “food for thought” from Mac evangelist [since 1989]
That’s funny and true, JanKo. I was thinking that Mac users are the only ones that would look at photos of someone unpacking something.
Yes, we are an unusual breed.
Can it be that good without antennas? All the others have antennas stick up off every side! Please let us know what kind of range your getting if you have one.
Man, when they turned it over I nearly lost it, and then those close ups of the openings….
Think how cold it would be without global warming!!!
Gargage sale of the near future: These things will be going for 50 cents each.
The unit is certainly attractive enough on its own, but why couldn’t they have done like the AppleTV and integrated the power supply? They obviously already know how to do it. Who wants to deal with another frickin’ power brick? Cinema Displays, Mac Mini, now Airport Extreme – all nicely styled on their own, but all putting the “extra stuff” outside and pretending it doesn’t count.
Well JanKo, part of the explanation is probably in the Cult of Mac, but then again, Apple’s gadgets are design products, starting with their packaging. It’s not every time you see such a sweet-looking power source. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”wink” style=”border:0;” />
MDN MW: ‘lot’ as in “Mac users are one quirky lot.”
No wall mount? This sucks! I’ve got holes where the old Airport Extreme is and now it only works sitting on a desktop! I guess I could use some double stick tape though! Also, a bit disappointed that there’s no external antenne port. Now for “N” standard rage extender you’ll have to wait for a new Aiport Express or buy two Extremes.
It’s Burrrrr anyway you look at it. I hope this kills the bugs that are killing our trees because the winters have been too warm since 1996.
Without appropriate video presentation and musical scores using iMovie, I see no point watching anything unboxed, unwrapped, manipulated, assembled, and exhibited.
Ah, apparently there is no way to mount it to a wall. Silly omission. I really don’t want to waste any tabletop space for this.
This thing is total shit, I got one yesterday at the Apple Store. The range is horrible I get better range with my Netgear, there is a driver issue with the Mac Book Pro’s an it will not work with Paralells or bootcamp. I called Apple Care and am told that they are working on the issues, thats just patheic.
This thing is going back tomorrow, look for it on the bargain rack.
