Excerpt: Apple has made fast even faster. The AirPort Extreme Base Station, in its first incarnation, achieved unprecedented speeds for Wi-Fi network transfers, topping 90Mbps of actual throughput in ideal circumstances. Even in less-than-perfect conditions, the Apple AirPort Extreme Base Station with Gigabit ethernet — with a recently updated draft version of the 802.11n standard — beat its 802.11g predecessor.
Excerpt: Apple’s new-look airport base stations have grown up, literally. Their new taller, ‘tower’ shape isn’t just for looks either, it’s better for broadcasting wireless signals, which should mean stronger and faster connections with your Wi-Fi devices.
Pros: Attractive design, 802.11ac Wi-Fi support, Very easy setup
Cons: Could use a USB connection on the front, Network Admins may want more settings
