I was looking to buy a AP Extreme as a router, should I just spend a little more and get the TC? As a router is the AP and the TC the same ?

    As a router, Time Capsule and AirPort Extreme have exactly the same technical specs and capabilities, and function exactly the same.

    How much you spend probably depends whether or not you want the external hard drive functionality of a Time Capsule.

  • Today, I just bought a TC to replace my AP X, and wish very much that I had bought the TC instead of the AP X. TC is exactly the AP X plus the backup hard drive, and my son just yesterday experienced the agony of delete, prompting the TC purchase so that it wouldn't happen again!
