Hi all, I am just starting a PhD, and am trying to decide what, if any, hardware to buy. I currently have an iMac at home, and PC desktop at uni. Although I would like the option of working elsewhere, this isn't essential to my studies. I am debating what is the best way to have one version of work, that I can access from home or uni or elsewhere, with only one up to date version, that is safe and backed up. Should I get a laptop that I do my work on, and not use the iMac for uni work, or a timecapsual that I save my thesis work on, and access on-line when I am not at home, or get a small portable drive to keep with me all the time? Or something else like an on-line storage thingy? Is it easy to access the timecapsual from home? Is there a lag to access files, and is this internet speed dependant? And if I am using this to access data from, I assume that that also needs to be backed up? IE can the capsule corrupt, and if so, would I be screwed?! Sorry, I don't think I have made much sence!
