    I need to get an external harddrive. I really like the idea of time capsule..no wires! However leopard is a must for that. Should I upgrade to leopard, or get an alternative external hard drive?

    I just dont want the negative effects that leopard has caused...(i.e. battery performance)

    thoughts?
    thanks guys

    Personally, I would wait to see if the fix the connectivity issues with Network drives. Who knows, TC may have the same issues as AEBS has with NAS. We are hoping that the 10.5.2 release fixes these problems.

    Tiger worked fine with AEBS and NAS, now leopard broke that.

    I got my seagate freeagent for 80 bucks, i'm decently happy with it.

    if budget is a reason at all to buy dont get something closed like the time capsule. My seagate has a 5 year warrenty. Rather then say $400 for the time capsule(which isnt terribly priced for what you get to be honest). On another note does anyone know what kind of drives they will be using besides "server class". :rolleyes:

    mehham, mybook

    well, i have the same ex HD, its a western digital 500gb mybook hard drive, the only difference is that i have studio edition (you have essential, i can tell by the price)

    the studio edition from what i bought it was $200, its better than the essential because it has FW, for fast back up, im very happy with it, it cooperates with my seagate internal

    you do need leopard for time capsule

    leopard is a great upgrade, i highly recommend it!!! TM works great!!

    sorry, mis-spelled

    essential is fine, I can get 25MB/s (under vista?) when transferring files, good enough for me.
