I’m a huge fan of Apple’s wireless appliances and a longtime Time Capsule user. I have my first Time Capsule model lying around the office somewhere and my wallet still hurts remembering that I paid a whopping $600 for it some five years ago.
If you don’t mind jumping on the previous-generation pre-owned hardware, the Refurbished Apple Store has now brought the price of the 2TB/3TB mid-2011 Time Capsule down to $149/$299, respectively…
Check them out here:
- Refurbished $149 2TB fourth-generation Time Capsule
- Refurbished $299 3TB fourth-generation Time Capsule
The aforementioned prices (hat tip to Charlie E.) represent a significant discount over Apple’s $299/$399 tiers for the current fifth-generation mid-2013 models.
Time Capsule couples a full-featured 802.11n Wi-Fi base station with simultaneous dual-band and support for up to 100 clients to an internal hard drive which works seamlessly with Time Machine in Mac OS X Leopard or later.
Refurbished gadgets have undergone Apple’s stringent refurbishment process prior to being offered for sale and are covered by one-year limited warranty.
The wireless accessory ships in 1-3 business days and is available for in-store pickup.
