4th Generation Apple Airport Extreme Released on October 2009

4th Generation Apple Airport Extreme Released on October 2009

Apple is starting to scare me. I have been waiting for this Mac Event all year.
And not because I am on the market for a new Macbook Pro but because I had
high hopes that Apple will announce the 7th Generation Airport Extreme at this event.

I am still running on a 4th Generation and while is a relic it also shows how good the Apple Airport Extremes are. I bought mine in October 2009 and it has been running 24/7 for 7 years with no issues.

I still remember the days of constantly rebooting my DLinks and Linksys router and don't plan on going back to a sub-par networking experience.

That been said the last time Apple refreshed the Airport Extreme was in 2013 and it
has never gone this long without a refresh and with today's virtually announcing an exit of the display market it scares me to think that they also exited the networking market andwill not release anymore Airport Extreme.

I will try to hold on making a network upgrade for a couple more months but if it become
certain that Apple do not plan in releasing a 7th gen I will need to look into a viable alternative.

So far I only have three possible candidates.

I really want a 7th Generation Airport Extreme but I am really doubting it will
happen and that is a big disappointment because they are the most reliable routers
in the market.

Let see what happens.

Google Pixel Chromebook

Google hit a home run with the Chromebook’s. They are fast convenient and best of all affordable.

Lower end Chromebook are plagued with buggy mouses, poor build quality and terrible displays. The good thing is that good Chromebook are not that expensive.

Here we have our top four Chromebookour opinion. Take them into consideration when deciding on your next purchase.
