TUAW: 802.11n Airport Express is now on sale 2

I have one of the old versions and I use it at home to extend my network (and connect iTunes to my stereo) and then take it on the road with me. It is perfect for hotels with a wired network connection (who often then charge for a wireless connection, if available). It also allows you to have your own encrypted network, so it is safer to use than the open hotel wifi. At conferences I occasionally room with a colleague or they are in nearby rooms so I can then share the network with them as well. Now it is up to N speeds and still only $99! That is a bah-gain.

Some people may not believe that a leak on the Swiss Apple Store is an indication of actual product coming down the mountain. “The Swiss don’t make mistakes like that,” they say. Well, fair enough, but we now have the real deal: the Airport Express with 802.11n is on sale in the US Apple Store.

Our retail channel sources told us that the AE would be available by 3/23 or sooner, so looks like “sooner” wins. $99, supports up to 10 connected machines, AirTunes and printer sharing: works for me.

    Chris, if you have the time, I have various comments and questions on my blog about whether I should switch — I’ve more-or-less decided to (I’ll get round to some networking ones sonner or later). I’d value your input, especially on the biblical / language / word stuff.

    Doug, I am sorry I did not contribute to your thread earlier. I thought you would likely have far more responses than you wanted. 🙂 I have now posted a couple of comments and I will put my main comments on word processing on this blog as well. I hope this is helpful to you and please do not hesitate to comment or email me if you have additional questions or concerns with a switch.
