    I just bought a new 2TB Time Capsule from the Apple Store in Montreal, Canada.

    I specificially asked the Apple employees if what they had in stock is the LATEST version just released as seen here: http://www.macrumors.com/2009/10/20...formance-on-airport-extreme-and-time-capsule/

    The guy checked the stock in the back just to make 100% sure they had the latest model number and he said "Yes this appears to be it". Just to be sure I asked one of the managers upon checkout the same question and he assured me that they only have the latest and greatest.

    So, as I got home I just wanted to double check my new TC's model number with what's on the Apple website.

    Mine shows: MC344AM/A

    Apple store shows: MC344LL/A


    Did the guys at the Apple store just try and get me out the door quick with a $600.00 purchase without even truly checking this issue? Or could it just be a variation in model numbers because it's up here in Canada?

    I'm normally not an annoying shopper but this is an expensive purchase and I really want to make sure I get the latest that Apple has to offer- I hear they upgraded the range performance and that many people are noting the latest versions are running much cooler than the 18 month lifespan models.

    I did check this shortly after posting and was relieved to see that- however still had a stupid paranoid thought in my head wondering maybe the Canadians didn't get the updated hardware yet (as with some things, it CAN take longer to show up here in Canada- however maybe Apple is not the case here).

    It's kind of a tricky one because we really don't have any clue if the hardware we purchased is the latest- there is no version number (ie: TC 1.2)

    And what is Apple doing with all the inventory of the old model numbers? Surely they would want to sell it all off?

    Thanks for the reply.
