So I have recently been flooded with issues regarding technology around my house. I have just sent my PS3 in for a warranty replacement (which was a smooth process), have gone "wired" after my well-loved Netgear 802.11B router would not work well with my new iMac and just the other day, my hard drive crashed on the new iMac. Thankfully I do backups periodically so I should not loose a lot of data. I have not been using Time Machine because my external is not large enough to handle the backup (it's around 200GB and the iMac is 320GB). I have started looking at the Time Capsule as an option for backing up as well as to replace my router and get N connectivity. Is this a smart all-in-one purchase? I've always thought the Airport Express Base Station was overpriced so I was considering getting a Linksys router. Also, for backups, I'm not sure I need the wireless capabilities of the Capsule. I built my current external using a MacAlly enclosure and could do the same for about $100 to get a 500GB external that I just daisy-chain in with my existing drive.
