our laptop crapped out this weekend. my wife uses it 90% of the time for work stuff. i rarely use it. she has an iphone and really wanted a mac so she can move photos etc seamlessly. we bought a mac bookpro yesterday. it only has 128gb hard drive. bottom line is we need an external hard drive to keep the computer with enough memory but allows her to access her pictures easily.
i am looking for a hard drive that has 500gb minimum and hooks into the router so it backs up automatically. we already have one that has to be plugged into the computer so it never gets used. the apple air thing sounds right but there is zero chance i pay $400 for it. (i loathe apple's business practices)
of course the drive has to get along fine with apple and i would like it to be no more than $200. the cheaper the better as long as it gets the job done.
any thoughts would be appreciated.
