Hey everyone, my question/ process is regarding my macbook pro / future iMac. Long story short I am selling my current 2011 high end customized 15" mbp on ebay, just listed it minutes ago. ( I don't know if I can post that item link on the forum or not? ) Anyway, or if ebay fails, i will sell it to Gazelle, for a decent price but not as high as my ebay hopes. Regardless, if it sells on ebay, then I will have to get rid of it faster. With Gazelle, their quotes are for 30days, so in early May I can try it again and see if I can get the same or near same quote to extend into June. Hoping iMacs get refreshed in May or June, yes reports said June but Apple can do what they want. I'm sure well get more clues as time goes on/ WWDC media banner is made public. Regardless, I do not need a laptop because I will be done with school, plus I have an iphone4 and we have a home basic iMac I can use for the time being if I have to ship it out. I know I can buy a current model but the refresh is right around the corner, plus I read from users of the current high end that for the games I want they are not completely satisfied with the specs. So I can wait 30-70 days. So with all that said, the time machine concern I have is that I indeed have a external drive with a full back up etc. but do you guys have any other tips or ideas on how to safeguard "everything" presuming I lose this laptop prior to iMac arrival. double back up on hdd, data website? I want to be as sure as I can that the external drive backup will be just fine when I go to click restore or drag and drop what I want. aka NO chance to loose my stuff. * side note, presuming the next iMac will too have ssd/hdd combo, how would one do a time machine restore due to two storage devices? Thanks everyone, appreciate it.
