Airport Extreme and Time Capsule now available

In June, Apple updated The Airport Extreme and Time Capsule into a case and they are now available at iStore’s nationwide or at iStore Online.

Airport Extreme

Airport Extreme, Time Capsule

The intelligent, easy-to-use AirPort Extreme Base Station with simultaneous dual-band support is the perfect wireless access point for home, school, or office. It offers next-generation 802.11ac Wi-Fi technology and delivers high-performance wireless access for Mac computers, PCs, and Wi-Fi devices such as iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Apple TV.

The previous Airport Extreme sold for R1999 where as the new model sells for R2599. This is a significant increase in price.

Time Capsule

With AirPort Time Capsule, you get a superfast Wi-Fi base station and an easy-to-use backup device all in one. And backing up your data couldn’t be simpler. Just set it up once and AirPort Time Capsule does the rest. It works with Time Machine in OS X to back up your Mac automatically and wirelessly, so you never have to worry about losing anything important again. Every photo. Every file. Every song. Even your apps and OS X settings are saved. AirPort Time Capsule stores it all up to 2TB or 3TB of data.

The previous Time Capsule (2TB) sold for R3299 where as the new model sells for R3999 and the 3TB for R5799. This price increase might be credited to the exchange rate but at this price it might be cheaper to do it by yourself.
