I am BRAND NEW to a Mac and after my PC was stolen with ALL of my pictures, music, videos, documents, I've finally learned my lesson and want to back up my data. I'm looking for something I can use as external storage as well as a backup with Time Machine (although I have no clue how to use Time Machine!!) However, I have no idea where to start. The Mac Time Capsule is quite pricey and I'm still recovering from the price of the MacBook (vs. a PC). Can anyone help with what I should be looking for when I browse stores and price out non-Mac hard drives? Please try to avoid acronyms in responses. My computer knowledge is not huge and my Mac knowledge is even less. Honestly I was reading another post earlier and it took me an hour to find "Disc Utility"....and even then I have no clue what to do with it. Oh and I'm in Canada so I'm looking for something I can pick up here, in order to save on shipping, time, etc Thanks in advance for your help!!
