This morning Apple Inc. updated the Mac Mini, iMac, Airport Extreme, and Time Capsule. We’ve all seen the Photoshopped Mac Mini pictures with a billion USB ports but now we know that it has five. The biggest updates for the desktop line are faster graphics cards, faster CPU’s and lower power consumption.
What interests me the most is the enhancements to the Airport Extreme and Time Capsule. Apple has seperated the 802.11g and 802.11n into seperate channels. This will allow each device on the network get the optimal speed without slowing up the network (iPhone at 802.11g and Apple TV at 802.11n). They’ve also added a “guest” network that will provide a password protected, seperate WiFi network that doesn’t see your local network. Very nice touches. At $499, Im seriously considering the 1TB Time Capsule.
