Time Capsule Functionality in Airport Extreme Base Station

Apple released updates for Time Machine and Aiport a few days ago and according to Mac Rumors some of its readers are writing in to say that you can now backup wirelessly to an Airport Extreme Base Station with an external USB drive attached.

Now this is certainly a good thing. An Airport Extreme with Gigabit Ethernet costs $179. You can buy a external drive such as a Lacie 500gb external drive for $115 at Comp USA. That totals to $294. That’s 5 dollars cheaper than the 500GB Time Capsule and you can even get more savings by getting a bigger hard drive.

Certainly something to consider. Check out the story here.
