Apple on Monday introduced a faster version of its AirPort Express wireless base station. Now equipped with the 802.11n specification, Apple says the AirPort Express can deliver five times the performance and twice the range of the previous model.
The AirPort Express design has not changed — it is still a single piece device that plugs directly into the wall. This compact design has been one of the most popular features of the AirPort Express, especially for those people that regularly travel.
The Airport Express also has a combo digital and analog audio connector, so you can connect it to a stereo. You can then wirelessly stream music through the AirPort to the stereo from iTunes on your Mac.
The new AirPort Express costs $99 and is available immediately.
