Today only, Best Buy is offering an AirPort Extreme Base Station 802.11n Wi-Fi dual-band router for only $144 with free shipping.  This base station retails for $180 and rarely goes on sale.

Please note:  We believe the product name for this item to be mislabeled as “refurbished.”  The product model and SKU are specifically for a brand new unit and the product description shows a full manufacturer warranty.  If indeed this was refurbished the “model” would begin with RF, the SKU would be different, the product description would state refurbished, and the spec would list “none” for warranty.  For these reasons we believe this to be a brand new unit.
