I've been lurking for a while but finally felt the need to post. I'm going away to school this fall and I plan to have a new MBP running Lion by then. I'd love to also be able to use Time Machine so I don't have to worry about losing anything when I take my new MBP around NYC. I'm pretty good at using my computer but not so much with networks and external drives and such so bear with me. The school's website says: With me being forced to use the University's internet, I assume a Time Capsule isn't worth it. Or is it? What should I get instead? The website also says Would I really need an adapter? I mean, I'll have an Ethernet port built in. I'm just surprised they would say it's required if not. What will I actually want/need. And they also say to get a USB printer, not wireless. Should I assume that the entry level printer that I can get the $100 rebate on when I buy my MBP is good enough? I'd been hoping to get something with AirPrint... Even if I can't use it at school, wouldn't it be helpful to have a printer with AirPrint for the future? Or should I just go with the cheaper option and figure I'll buy a new printer someday anyway? Thanks for your help!
