The Airport Extreme is the nicest router that Apple makes. As you'd expect from a $180 router, it has all the major features you'd want: simultaneous dual-band routing, gigabit ethernet ports, and the ability to add a USB hard drive. If you like flashing router firmware or futzing with network configurations, this is not a deal for you. But if you want a buy-it-and-never-think-about-it-again appliance that serves up rock solid Internet, you can't go wrong with the Airport Extreme, especially if you're a Mac person.
Refurbs are tricky. Some refurbs — like Apple's — are good as new. This Airport is not an Apple refurb. For instance, it only comes with a 30-day warranty. But if you're okay with that risk, you can get an current-generation Airport Extreme for $90 from Best Buy, which is almost half the price for a new one on Amazon and exactly half off Apple's price. When we featured the same price from the same retailer back in January, I picked one up and couldn't be happier. Mine came in a brown OEM box and looked like it was brand new.
The $90 Airport Extreme deal is running through tomorrow, or until they sell out, which will likely happen. So if you want one, head on over to [Best Buy].

Staples just started carrying Apple stuff. Good for them! But also good for you, because with change comes opportunity. Staples runs $15 off $100 coupons on a regular basis, and — surprise! — they actually apply to Apple goods. Today's code is 62355. Sure, you're gonna have to spend $100, but it's a good store to keep in mind when you're looking for accessories like Magic Mice, Magic Trackpads, or Apple TVs. [Staples]
