i'm sure there are tons of threads about this subject, but i wanted some personalized responses please. is iCloud worth buying more space from? i just upgraded my old macbook air (2008, 64gb sad) to the new macbook pro 13.3" retina. i've been using i the free storage from iCloud for about four years now and my synchronization in my life of my iPhone 5s to my macbook pro is nearly perfect. i love that when i edit a note on my computer it gets updated on my phone nearly instantaneously. having backups of things is exceedingly important in my life, mostly in order to just have quick answers to things suddenly breaking (although i keep my electronics in SCARY good condition, my phone is four months old, no case, no screen protector and the thing is still in mint condition and best buy paid me $150 for my iPhone 4 32gb when i upgraded to my 5s in early april). i recently updated my photo backups (since webshots went out of business years ago i had no way of accessing my photo collection from other computers) and got a shutter fly account but am not pleased with the low quality uploads (but am pleased its free storage). my music (~18gb) and my photos (~5gb) also have dvd-rw backups but i don't make new backups nearly enough and i don't have time machine set up yet (as i have two apple airport expresses and the usb doesn't support external hard-drives, not like my external even works anymore, i recently trashed it). anyway, advice on whether or not i should upgrade my iCloud account? is it worth it? is the bandwidth downloading speed fast? does it support high resolution photographs? or would you recommend purchasing a time capsule? or would you recommend purchasing an airport extreme and an external drive? i really want to upgrade to 802.11ac wireless because I'm very excited about my wifi card in my laptop and want to test it (i recently switched my air to 5ghz N only wireless and tested the speed and was surprised it was noticeably faster) plus I'm trading in my iPhone 5s and buying the 6 once it gets released and i know that will have 802.11ac wireless too. upgrade iCloud account? time capsule? airport extreme + external hard drive? all advice is appreciated, thanks guys!
