Hi All- I'm on the verge of buying an iMac i7, that's the easy part. I also need to consider backup, which I have a difficult time understanding all the possibilities I've read on. Right now I have a Maxtor 200GB external HD I use on my vintage iMac. I turn it on once every month or after a specific project and hit the backup button, that's it, then I turn it off till I think It's time to back-up again. It stays turned off for the far majority of it's life. I've never had to actually use it, the Mac has never crashed since I've owned it. So I paid maybe $150 for it? The more I read on backup methods the less I understand, and the more expensive they get. The Time Capsule seems to be expensive, doesn't last long, and runs all the time. I really don't want something that is running all the time. I have allot of RAW images and websites that I build. I back up accordingly, then turn it off. Anything compatible with that type of usage out there or by Apple? Is the Maxtor all I really need? I just don't think Time Capsule is what I want. Yet, if I should really upgrade this backup system I would like to stay with something from Apple so I can just buy it all at once from the Apple Store, like to keep the whole system on one card expense. Any suggestions on this?
