    Only benefit I would see would be the ability to extend your wireless network range. The Airport Time Capsule includes an internal hard drive that you can use to back up your mac computers.

  • The AirPort Extreme also lets you airplay to your speakers.

  • I think there is another benefit to having both, but I could use some help with this.
    An Airport Extreme is only a router, and does not have the ability to save data
    An Airport Time capsule is a router AND a back-up device.
    i think this is correct. Can anybody confirm or deny?
