    Hey all,

    New poster, but reading the forums has saved my **** a lot. Now I'm excited because I finally get to ask a question.

    I recently purchased a Macbook Pro, ditching my PC. It's my first Mac, but I've had several iPhones. In the past on my PC, I've always just backed up important folders on an external hard drive. The guy at the Apple store told me that I needed to buy a Time Capsule. I understand it is part the convenience of the wireless backup, but I don't really need the router. I guess I'm just asking for advice. Do I need one of these or can I get by with just using an external HD?

    Thank you so much!

    You can get by just fine with an eternal HD

    If you don't want to get a time capsule have you considered offsite backup like Backblaze?
