My Macbook started hiccuping and spontaneously shutting off for a few days before completely dying a few days ago. I had used it for less than 2 months and neglected to backup the HD. Now I'd like to backup my Macbook HD before sending it in for repair and am trying to figure out the most cost effective way to do it. A few questions for you guys: -- I bought a 2.5" HD enclosure already for which to insert the Macbook HD. It's got a USB 2.0. I assume if I plug this into another Mac, the drive will automatically be detected. -- Can I buy a Powermac G4 with any version of Mac OS X and be able to back-up my data? Powermac G4s are VERY reasonably priced on eBay. -- I read that Powermac G4 have only USB 1.0. Does that mean the speed defaults to USB 1.0 rates, or will it not work altogether? -- I'm resigned to spending a few hundred bucks to do this. Are there any other suggestions? Thanks!
