Apple's range of Time Capsule products might not be the most exciting products in its range, but for Apple users they're among the easiest ways to create a backup of important data. Apple has added additional storage space to its Time Capsule while the prices have remained the same, which sounds like a pretty decent deal to us.

Apple's range of Time Capsule products might not be the most exciting products in its range, but for Apple users they're among the easiest ways to create a backup of important data. Apple has added additional storage space to its Time Capsule while the prices have remained the same, which sounds like a pretty decent deal to us.

The new addition is a 3TB model that otherwise appear to be identical to what's been on offer so far from Apple with Gigabit Ethernet support and 802.11a/b/g/n dual band Wi-Fi. The Time Capsule doubles up as an Ethernet router and print server beyond being a backup solution.

Although the pricing hasn't changed, US$299 (S$388) now gets you a 2TB model while US$499 (S$648) bumps this up to 3TB which seems like a very steep premium for a mere 1GB of extra storage space. In the US the new Time Capsule's will ship within 24h while in Singapore they're not expected for another 5-7 weeks.
