    Nice find!

    Why isn't this on page 1/2 or something?

    Excellent find! This may now make a 2TB hard drive possible in the iMac... [​IMG]

    Wow, nice find. I hope this comes out in Britain soon, as i have been tempted to get one at home, but 1 TB wasn't worth the price.

    Why didn't they keep the 500GB one at a lower price? In our country, it gets a whole f**king lot more expensive. It's about $400 a 500GB one. It's a shame, I would have loved one.

    Well, you should be able to get a big discount on the 500GB if you still find it.

    In the US you can get the 500GB refurb for $179 at Buy.com
    http://www.buy.com/prod/apple-time-...-with-mac-and-pc-802/q/loc/101/211504533.html

    The reason why Apple don´t offer the 500GB anymore is because their inventory is almost out of that model. If makes a whole lot more sense to update Timecapsule with a bigger harddrive than ramp up the production of a 500GB that most won´t buy anyway.

    PS No need to use the f-word here:mad:

    Good find. The Mac page isn't updated yet. So if you didn't post something, I wouldn't have noticed.....

    Looks like they may have taken it down, whenever you click 'Buy Now' on Apple.com site you get a 'page not found.'

    Why should the 500GB one go down? How about those like me, who have only got a 160GB MacBook Pro, and wouldn't like to have all the wires hanging around from an AirPort Express with a Western Digital connected through USB.

    Still cheaper to buy the Airport Extreme (refurbished) at $149 plus a WD 1TB HDD (or something similar) at ~$125 then to buy the TC 1TB at $299.

    I don't even know which is better at this point, but a little savings anyway....

    I just figured if the 1TB dropped in price, then so would the 500GB - whatever, doesn't matter.

    What does matter is the fact that you are doing something (AE + External HDD) that I have heard is impossible.... care to elaborate?!?! :confused:

    Plug a USB hard drive into an AirPort Extreme, set up Time Machine and Robert's your mother's brother. :)

    NA said AE (Airport Express) which is not possible IIRC.
