With AirPort Express, where you place your desktop computer or use your laptop at home doesn?t have to be determined by where you can wire it for broadband Internet access. AirPort Express liberates you from using your computer near the phone jack to which your DSL modem is connected or within reach of your cable connection if you use a cable modem. These restrictions go out the window ? AirPort Express gives you the freedom to place or use your AirPort-equipped Mac or Wi-Fi-compliant Windows PC wherever in your home it?s most convenient for you, not where it?s most convenient for your house.
Everyone in your family can surf the web wire-free because AirPort Express provides simultaneous wireless Internet access through a single DSL or cable modem for up to 10 computers. You also have a supercharged wireless home network that delivers data rates of up to 54 Mbps, so you can share digital photos, for example, with instant gratification.
Many Computers. One Printer. No Cables
Ever wish you had more than one printer ? one for every Mac in your home? Problem solved. AirPort Express saves you the expense of buying extra printers, as well as the trouble of moving one from one room to another to connect to this or that Mac. Just connect a USB printer to the USB port on AirPort Express and everyone can share the same printer ? without a single cable tethering anyone?s computer to the printer.
AirTunes: Your Music Unwired
AirPort Express with AirTunes extends your wireless world even beyond access to the Internet and your home network. It brings your iTunes music to virtually any room in your house, wherever you like to enjoy your music most.
Unrivaled in its ease of use and versatility, iTunes lets you listen to your entire music collection just the way you want to listen to it ? in custom-tailored playlists, by genre, by artist, what have you. With AirTunes, AirPort Express lets you enjoy the flexibility of iTunes in your living room, or practically any room in your home where you have a stereo or powered speakers. Connect AirPort Express to your stereo or a set of powered speakers and you can play your iTunes music wirelessly through it just as you would through your computer speakers.
Relax on your favorite couch and listen to your playlists or enjoy an audiobook. Use your AirPort-equipped iBook as a kind of superpowered remote control to play exactly the songs you want to hear without ever having to leave your seat to fumble through a mess of CDs.
Buy several AirPort Express Base Stations and connect one to every stereo or set of powered speakers in your house ? one to your stereo in your bedroom, one to your stereo in your living room and still another to a pair of powered speakers in your kitchen, for example. Its small size and affordability make it perfect for having more than one. Imagine being able to play your iTunes music on whichever speakers in your house you prefer at a given moment.
Or if you already have a wireless network in place, you can use AirPort Express to add music to its wireless capabilities. If you have an AirPort Extreme Base Station set up in your home office, for example, there?s no need to scrap this setup and create a whole new one with an AirPort Express Base Station, your DSL or cable modem, printer and stereo all in one place
