    What do you suggest I do?
    I've added both of them to my cart.
    Which one should I remove and which one should I checkout?

    I am thinking if I buy new one, I will get the latest whereas a refurb could be a first generation. Is that true? Or how will that affect my backup? Any firmware upgrades to worry about?

    BTW it is a 1TB Time Capsule

    You can easily upgrade the firmware. As long as you make sure that the refurb has the same specs as the latest and the price difference is good enough, then you should consider the refurb.

    ...which ever model you get, make sure the wifi part is the simul dual band, the model before that won't let you get full wifi speeds with both G and N devices at the same time...
