I have a new MacBook Core 2 Duo, and as you know Apple snuck a Draft 802.11n Airport card into this model. I am interested in buying an Airport Extreme Base Station, to replace my old Dell Router, but am worried that at MacWorld '07 they will introduce a new Base Station. Should I take the plunge and go ahead and buy the current one, and if their is an update can I exchange it? Or should I wait and see what is to come at MacWorld.
Opinions are greatly accpeted. Thanks in advance.

There's no telling what Apple will do at this point. I'd just wait it out until after Macworld just to be safe. There have been reports of constraints in the Airport supply which often means an update, but it can also be nothing at all.

I'd say wait. Macworld is less than 2 weeks away. It won't hurt if you wait a bit. If they don't come out with anything new then I'd say go ahead and buy the current model

If you already have something that does the job just fine, then I'd say wait. if they come out with something new, then you haven't missed a chance, and if they don't, what did you lose in the meantime?
