3 Testing conducted by Apple in May 2013 using preproduction AirPort Time Capsule 802.11ac 2TB base stations, production AirPort Time Capsule 802.11n (4th generation) 2TB base stations, and preproduction 1.3GHz dual-core Intel Core i5-based 11-inch MacBook Air units with 4GB of RAM. Wireless network configured with WPA2. Performance may vary due to network configuration, distance, wireless interference, and other factors. Tests are conducted using specific devices and reflect the approximate wireless Time Machine backup performance of AirPort Time Capsule.
