Apple Time Capsule 500 GB ... the nagging need to back up has been replaced by automatic, constant protection. And even better, it all happens wirelessly, saving everything important, including your sanity.
Time Capsule includes a wireless hard drive designed to work with Time Machine in Mac OS X Leopard. Just set Time Capsule as the designated backup drive for Time Machine, and that's it. Depending on how much data you have, your initial backup with Time Capsule could take overnight or longer. After it completes, only changed files are backed up - automatically, wirelessly and in the background. So you never have to worry about backing up again.
Have multiple Macs in your house? Time Capsule can back up and store files for each Leopard-based Mac on your wireless network. No longer do you have to attach an external drive to each Mac every time you want to back up. Time Capsule spares you the work.
Time Capsule is your one place for backing up everything. Its massive server-grade hard drive gives you all the capacity and safety you need. So whether you have 250 songs or 250.000 songs to back up, room is the last thing you'll run out of. And considering all that storage and protection come packaged in a high-speed Wi-Fi base station starting at 2 895 kronor, data isn't the only thing you're saving.
More than just a wireless hard drive, Time Capsule is also a full-featured AirPort Extreme Base Station with 802.11n technology. Experience a high-speed wireless network and a breakthrough way to back up all the Mac computers on your network.
Time Capsule uses the 802.11n draft 2.0 specification, so you can rest assured that it works with certified 802.11n draft 2.0 products. And it's compatible with Macs and PCs that use 802.11a, b or g technologies, as well as wireless devices such as the iPod touch and Apple TV.
The included USB port is great for sharing a printer throughout your wireless network. Time Capsule and the Bonjour networking technology let everyone in the house or office - Mac and PC users alike - take advantage of one centrally located printer. And if you want to share both a printer and an additional hard drive, you can. Just connect a USB hub to Time Capsule. Whatever the combination, Time Capsule divides and conquers.
Time Capsule with Time Machine in Leopard is the ideal backup solution. But that doesn't mean Tiger, Windows XP and Windows Vista users can't enjoy the benefits of Time Capsule, too. Because it mounts as a wireless hard drive, Tiger and Windows users simply access Time Capsule directly from the wireless network for exchanging and storing files quickly and easily.

As a concept, the idea of being able to back everything up in the background without actually having to do anything is an excellent one. To this end, the Time capsule does its job very well. Being able to look back a year ago for a file you may have deleted is also a very useful one. And its all done so seamlessly thanks to the Time machine interface on OSX. So having everything backed up for you automatically is a good thing. But! (you knew there was a but coming!) The other function of the Time Capsule is as a wireless router, and its range is frankly SHOCKING. It has by far the worst range of any modem I've ever used - and I've used a ...

After a 5 minute demo of the new Mac Book Pro in the apple shop I decided to broaden my computer knowledge beyond the Windows front, however I wasn't sure my current Windows Server 2008 would suffice as a backup holding disks formatted in NTFS instead of the apple required HFS. I spotted the time machine, but as I only wanted a simple back up tool, I thought it was unnecessarily expensive for my needs. So I decided to look for a simple external hard drive. A couple of weeks back I spotted the time capsule on hotukdeals for just over £100, so I decided to take the plunge. The time capsule does offer more than a lazy back up: 1. 3 port ...
