    Hey guys. So, I was wondering if I could back up my powerbook to a time capsule using a usb cable? I wonder this because I don't have won't have internet service for another week or two, but really need to clear room on my powerbook. Also, I've looked at a couple of options of an external drive and maybe an airport express to save a couple dollars. Any thoughts, suggestions?

    If you are looking for a new router, wireless backup, and little mess (everything in one box), the TC would work great.

    If not, you can get an external hd cheap.

    My first back up with the TC, I used a network cable instead of USB or wireless. Just a thought.
