    Airport Express base station

    Its cheaper ($20 less than both of those!)
    Has a built in N router which is an added bonus
    Has a security slot

    and with a cheap normal hub can be made to take as many decives as you want, and be configured straight out of the box with a mac to use printers, external hard drives etc.

    That only has one usb port, and I could have sworn that I read that a usb hub wouldn't work correctly attached to it to give it more.

    If i'm mistaken and I can attach a regular usb hub to it for more ports, then that was my first choice (time capsule more so than AEBS) and the direction that I will go.

    Edit: Must have typo'd something on my earlier search regarding this, as it was pretty easy to find by google, that does indeed work. Guess that will be the direction that I will go. Thanks :)

    You just have to make sure that the HUB has it's own plug for electricity. The one in the Airport will not be able to power it AND some devices.

    Can you plug in an iPod into an AEBS to sync wirelessly?
