I'm guessing it's just a new 802.11g (54 Mbps) Airport Base Station. The old base station is a 486 computer with a PC Card inside.<br><br>

Well, we already know Firewire 2 is being released. Apple already released a developer build of the IP over Firewire app, so maybe it has something to do with those. Also, something in the XServe line would possibly use AMD technology, so this is really not that big of a deal for the average Mac user.<br><br><br>Visit Me At My .Mac Site

I didn't say it was exciting. I just mentioned that the new base station was AMD powered. <br><br>Remember all that speculation a few months back where Apple and AMD were chatting about collaboration...? I think this effectively garrottes the rumors of AMD making CPUs for Apple.<br><br>No, it's not particularly exciting. <br><br>
