    Hi there. I'm in dire need of a new wireless router and I'm looking at getting an AirPort Extreme. I'm looking at the new one on the Apple Store (which can be purchased in store) and then also the refurb, which according to the website was released in October 2009.

    New: http://store.apple.com/us/product/MD031LL/A/AirPort-Extreme?fnode=MTY1NDA0Mg

    Refurb: http://store.apple.com/us/product/FC340LL/A

    What are the major differences in between these? Am I going to notice a major difference in performance between them or will I be fine in getting the refurb one to save a few bucks?

    Thanks!

    Edit: Oh yeah, if it makes a difference, here's a fairly comprehensive list of what all is going to be connected, but rarely on all at once:

    Wired:
    Xbox 360, Blu-Ray Player in living room, 8-Port switch, Internet Connected TV, PS3, Apple TV, Desktop Hackintosh

    Wireless:
    iPhone, iPad, MBP, Roommate's Laptop, Xbox 360 and Droid X

    I answered my own question! Hooray lol, sorry to bother. If this comes up again for anyone in the future, check out this: http://guides.macrumors.com/AirPort

    It's got a nice chart and it seems as though the new model AEBS is significantly more powerful on G/N wireless devices. Looks like that's my choice!
