    I just ordered the Iomega 500GB NAS/USB drive from the Dell Days of Deals (http://www1.ca.dell.com/content/topics/segtopic.aspx/days_of_deals?c=ca&cs=CADHS1&l=en&s=bsd
    (NOTE - Dell Canada)

    Has anyone hooked these up to the Airport Extreme? I would like to have this drive hooked up via USB when I am docked (ie: at my desk), but when I move my MBP I want the drive accessible via the LAN. It sounds like this Iomega drive will do this for me. Anyone correct me on this?

    I keep resisting these fast drives that seem to chain me to my desk - or have me lugging my drive around from room to room to be able to access all my vids/music/movies/photos etc...

    Nice! That thing looks sexy. It sure would be nice to be able to back up both of my machines to the network. I'd do just about anything to get rid of this portable HD that I've got connected via USB2. Does anyone know if OSX will restore from a network volume?
