Sleeper hit of Macworld: The AirPort Extreme Base Station

If you haven’t checked it out yet, take a peek at the brand new AirPort Extreme Base Station. I know what you’re thinking: “Who cares about 802.11n? I can get that from a cheap LinkSys or Belkin box. No reason to spend the $$$.” Ah, yes, but did you notice this one little detail:

Share your hard drive

Now you can share an external USB hard drive over your wireless and wired network by simply connecting it to the USB port on your AirPort Extreme Base Station. Called AirPort Disk, it’s perfect for sharing files, making backups, and more. You can even connect multiple drives and printers using a USB hub (sold separately). (See system requirements.)

So the new Airport Extreme Base Station is small, sleek, wireless router and it serves as a Mac-native version of the NSLU2. That’s mega-hot.
