    Okay so I am planning on buying an Apple Airport Express from a person off Craigslist tomorrow. The lady said she has never used it and her husband got it like two months ago. Okay so this brings me to my questions.

    1) How can I tell when the Airport Express was made and when it was released?

    2) Can you hook up an external hard drive to the Airport Express? I have heard that the external hard drives won't work but I didn't know if they have updated them. This is the main reason why I asked question 1.

    Thanks. But still is there any way I can tell when the Airport Express was released?

    While not allowing you to pinpoint a specific year of manufacture, the model number (sometimes called the Part Number by Apple) should give you a hint.

    If it's MB321LL/A, then that's the latest Express, with WiFi-N, first released in 2008.
    If it's something else, then it's the Express with WiFi-G, first released in 2004.

    EDIT: flopticalcube beat me to the punch. Well played.
    /shakes tiny fist anyway
