This is a friendly reminder that backing up your computer is serious business. We recommend a cool, little portable device from LaCie.
The key is to plug it in everyday and let Apple's brilliant Time Machine application do all the work. This has already saved us lots of time. Especially when it was time for us to upgrade to our new iMac. It is simple to restore your files from the old machine and your new computer has all the files ready to go, even the same desktop background.
The 500 GB drive is perfect. In fact that is what I use and it has been a reliable tool for over 4 years and counting.
