    Does anybody know if today's product updates are pretty much it, or does Apple usually updates other products as well?

    I'm looking at a great deal on a new 500gb time capsule.

    Thanks!!

    The Time Capsule was just updated to include dual band capability. I doubt you'll see any updates. The largest 3.5" SATA HDD available is 1.5 TB. I don't see Apple implementing that in their current Time Capsule lineup anytime soon (just imagine the costs). You can get some good deals on refurbished Time Capsules or last gen (single band) TC's from other retailers I'm sure.

    2 TB HDDs are available.

    I stand corrected. But at $250, how likely is it that Apple will be putting it in their products? And what would they sell it at? There probably won't be any updates to the TC (my original point).

    I don't think Time Capsule is ready for an update. I do think that Apple should lower the price of them. $500 for a 1 TB NAS + Router? I guess its nice with it in one box but its still pretty costly.
