Today I was reminded of just how easy these things are to work with. Picked up a used 2013 AirPort Extreme 802.11ac for $45 to upgrade the 2011 model I'd been using. I plug in and press the reset button, connect to it using the utility, and am immediately prompted to transfer over the settings. Up and running in a matter of minutes. Its been eight months since we first saw the rumor that Apple is shifting resources away from AirPort wireless routers, and haven't yet heard anything official to indicate that's the case. It makes me wonder if, perhaps, Apple is simply waiting for the next big advancement in wireless technology. The 2013 AirPort Extreme 802.11ac remains decent, despite being a few years old at this point, although I personally wouldn't pay full price for one. I'm curious what your thoughts are on this.
