Hey can someone help me here. I was browsing the refurb site on Apple.com, and noticed that you can now get the Airport Express base station with Wireless N...

I thought that was the whole point of the upgrade to Airport Extreme? I'm confused. Check out this link and let me know what y'all think.

The Airport Extreme is much more the 802.11n. ;)

What about network drives and Ethernet ports?

The express does give you the "streaming itunes over wireless" thing. If you don't need the the extra ports, go for the express.

Well like everyone else has said there are more options with the Extreme, USB HD connectivity, multiple ethernet ports. Just no streaming music. So to each its own pros and cons. I have both although the Express is the pre-n version, am thinking of jumping to the N version to move my whole wireless set up to N only.

What I am saying is that the link I provided shows the EXPRESS with WIRELESS N, and as you said the Express has always been pre-N. Thoughts?

Awesome! Thank you...I was just making sure that this wasn't a fluke before I purchase it. I love Macfans :)
