    Hi Folks,

    I currently own an iMac but I haven't yet bought an external backup disk for it. I'm about to buy a MacBook Air and want to get a solution that'll enable me to back both up on the same disk.

    Can I assume that it's relatively straightforward for the MBA to wirelessly backup to the external disk if it's attached to the iMac? I.e. can the iMac be used like a Time Machine by the MBA with one of these attached: http://www.amazon.co.uk/My-Book-Stu...2SFA/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1289565912&sr=1-6 ?

    Cheers,
