    I was over at CompUsa today and they had the non-gigabit AEBS for $149. I bought one not realizing that Apple had recently updated the Extreme to include gigabit ethernet. I thought I was getting a great deal but I guess not so much. DO you think that having gigabit ethernet is worth paying $179 for?

    Only if you have two hardwired computers with gigabit that transfer a lot of data. Otherwise they are more or less the same. In fact, with the non gigabit you can stick to the 7.1.1 firmware which behaves better with AirDisk.

    Go to pricegrabber and get it a little cheaper than $179...

    I guess I'll be taking it back to CompUSA. Thanks
