    Hi everyone

    I was interresten in getting a Airport Extreme and hooking it up to a external HD enclosure in order to use it with time machine. I believe this is a much cheaper option than buying a Time Capsule. Only thing is, what HD enclosure to get? I have seen some that fits perfect under the Airport extreme but don't know where to boy them. Prefeably in Europe.

    Anything I should be aware of when doing this?

    Get a ministack. I have one setup with a 1.5tb 7200rpm drive I got on sale. It fits right under my AEBS(matches a mini better though). Is also a USB hub too so you can plug the network printer to it. Only thing is I haven't set mine up for time machine, as I'm waiting to pick up a 500gb hd for my macbook so I can time machine only the os partition of my hdd, and then keep the rest as space for media that's already backed up on the external.
