    Looks good; I wonder if this one CAN extend both the 2.4 ghz and the 5.0 ghz bands of the airport extreme??

    From a travel perspective... the form factor is a let down. I like the current form factor with the integrated power plugs. It is a smaller package.

    I currently use mine when traveling if the hotel has wired (vs WiFi) internet connections.

    Still doesn't have gigabit ethernet. WTF are they thinking? If it has 802.11n, it should have gigabit ethernet to take advantage of 802.11n's speed when transferring to wired computers. The wired connection should never be the bottleneck.

    So they updated the Airport Express but not Time Capsule?

    So in terms of specs, is the new Airport Express better than Time Capsule now? I believe TC can do 2.4 and 5.0ghz simultaneously too.
