Internal or external?

Recommended Posts

I need to upgrade my mid-2007 iMac.

 

Should I get, say, the one terabit iMac and a 2TB external drive for backup – or a 3TB iMac? Which is better, internal or external? (I already have an (ageing) 1TB time capsule).

 

Ta!

you can NEVER have enough storage.

Great response, John. :)

 

Does this imply internal storage, external – or both! I was thinking of getting a smaller internal drive and then building up a series of external drives, buying a new one every year or so. So, when the oldest one dies I’ve newer ones to take over.

 

Does this sound a good way to go?

WD just released their My Cloud external hard drive. There's 2TB, 3, and a 4TB option. It works as a NAS and that could be an option. The 2 TB starts at $149 at Best Buy. Just a thought.
