1999 Airport Base Station - This One is Complete
06 12, 11 Filed in: Airport | Unboxing
This is the Airport Base Station that came bundled with my “new” iBook. I thought since this was in mint condition, and complete in the box, it was worthy of its own post. Upon further inspection, I also noticed that is it indeed slightly different than the M5757 that I already have.
The box is in much better condition than the first one I bought.
It is mint. Not a mark on it. Beautiful! I wonder if the previous owner ever used it.
I was going to keep this one and sell the other, but seeing the subtle differences between the two makes me want to keep both.
Both boxes are labeled “1999”. However, the bottom labels between the two are slightly different despite the fact that they are the same part number. The new one is labeled “1999”, while the old one is labelled “2000”. The I/O labels are also different. The 1999 model is silver and the 2000 model is more of a dark gray.
Strange how Apple makes these subtle changes, just enough to make each one worth keeping. Looks like I’ll have to put another nail in the wall.
