    Hi everyone,
    I'd like to by a new time capsule (2 TB) in a brick store (not online from the Apple Store). Is there a possibility to find out if it's the latest generation? As far as I know the product number hasn't changed, but maybe there is a difference in the packaging.
    Would be great if someone who bought his/hers recently could help.
    Thanks
    Peter

    I'm not sure if this helps but I bought a 1 TB on Black Friday. Model Number: A1355.

    Actually the previous generation also had a 2TB

    The main difference is the new generation archives quicker with snow leopard.

    Look for that in the literature and you will know you have the latest generation.

    Nice and scientific huh?

    :confused:

    There have only been two revisions of the Time Capsule.

    The first came in 500GB and 1TB models, and the second came in 1TB and 2TB models. The new revision is notable also by the fact that it can do simultaneous dual networks, one for N and one for G, and/or separate Private and Guest networks. Where was this first revision 2TB model you're referring to?
