    I'm looking for a decent wireless external hard drive to use with my iMac and Macbook. It needs to be able to support both devices at the same time (they can do that right?) and at least 1TB.

    I've seen the horror stories of the Time Capsule so I'm not interested by that.

    Thanks in advance.

    What horror stories have you heard about the TC? My first generation is still happily spinning away, never had any problems and set up was flawless.

    The power supplies braking, or the machine failing.

    I know it doesn't happen for all, but i can't afford to loose some of the documents etc that I will be backing up.

    I have the Western Digital World Book. It sits on my network and serves my PS3, PC, and Macbook with no issues (running for about 6 months).

    It is Time machine compatible as well.

    Looks good, do you know if they sell them in the Apple stores? As I can pick it up when I get the MacBook

    Not sure if they sell the World Book, but they have other flavors on the website (My Book Studio). I bought from Amazon for about $170.
