Getting straight to it! I've owned a Mac Mini for 2 years now. I like to always keep it on and I've gotten used to certain things always being in a certain place. I use 8 desktops on my Mini and countless folders in a certain 'way' opened on each desktop with files I use daily. What I love is that even if I need to turn off my Mac mini, when I turn it back on ALL of the folders are in the desktop they were opened in. I'm also a tab-aholic! I have a certain set of tabs that I never close. I've been thinking of getting a new Mac soon and my question is as follows: If I buy a Time capsule and back up my Mac mini - would it be possible to have my new computer looking exactly the same as my Mac mini? With everything the way it was on my Mac mini as if it wasn't even a new computer? Even down to the smallest details such as the way I have my dashboard set up and the tabs I have on my browser? Since my mini runs on OS Lion would that effect anything if I were to use the backup on a Mac that runs mavericks? And also what does a time capsule have in advantage over using a normal external hardrive as a back up other than backing up your files wirelessly? Thanks in advance for any help!
