Apple provides automatic backup for your Mac via Time Machine, the fully automatic, extremely powerful backup system built into every Mac. All you need is a place to store your backup. Creative Computing has the perfect solution for you:
An external hard drive provides storage space for your pictures, documents, movies and more. External hard drives plug right into your computer and Time Machine backs up easily, often, and automatically. Our favorite: LaCie Rugged External Hard Drive, 500 GB, 1 TB or 2 TB.
A network hard drive provides storage space for all the computers on your home or office network. Time Machine will back up all your data easily, often and automatically through your own connection. We recommend: Apple Time Capsule-1 or 2 TB or LaCie Network Space 2- 1 or 2 TB.
