Good, thanks for pointing that out. It's about time they added wired ethernet ports (as in 'more than one') to the Airport base station. Now maybe it will be real contender in the market.

Yep, it's designed a lot like the TV (everyone needs to remember how to do that now, btw, although the forums also need to learn how to display it the right way). 802.11n draft, three LAN ports, USB supports hard drives or printers, $179. Overall, not bad, though I hope the old one stays available at the lower price for a while. EDIT: Also, it supports 802.11a, which I think is a first for Apple, isn't it?

Airport Extreme, not Express, seems like a price drop if anything.

The NAS function is what I would have expected as a companion to aTV.

I was thinking I remembered the Airport Extreme being $149 for the basic version, but maybe that's just faulty memory. Still, this is enough of an upgrade to justify it, certainly.

is it possible to hook up more than one shared drive? could you plug usb drives into an old mac and plug that in to the ethernet.

I have a bunch of drives I would like to network. I was considering a NAS server, but this looks pretty sweet.

For one thing, you can hook a USB hub up to the port on the Extreme and plug a couple of USB drives in, plus a printer or two if the mood so takes you.

More info here.

Sold! I guess I was reading too fast and missed it...

What if you’d like to exchange files over your wireless network and still have access to a network printer? Easy. Just connect a USB hub to AirPort Extreme and attach your devices to the hub. Share both a printer and a hard drive, multiple printers, or multiple hard drives.
