Thread: Airport Express..buy now or wait

Okay, I cannot stand my wireless router..it's awful. It drops the connection when my cordless rings, etc (No matter what channel it's on). I see the Airport Express is only $99 now. Is this because they're probably updating them soon? If they are..would it be worth waiting?

Unless you are going to try to use 802.11n (the new standard) and your computer's card is 802.11n compliant, then I see no reason to wait.
I've got an Extreme and an Express (to both extend the range of the Extreme in my 2-story house and to let me to the wireless iTunes thang) and it's great.

It is not worth of waiting for the new Airport Express as there are no rumors about the new version. I fully agree, that if your computer is not "n" network compliant, you have no chance to get any other benefit from waiting.Luke

If your current Router is stressing you out...I wouldn't wait, the Extreme is very easy and highly recommended!

Where you getting your base station? Apples web page is still listing it for $179.00, or that is the price for the "N"
