    Specs:
    Imac 27" Retina 3.3GHz, 512GB Flash, 16GB memory, OS X.11.4.
    Depends what you mean. SuperDuper will clone your existing hard drive to an external. If you mean making a backup DVD with your operating system on it, look to purchase a Leopard full retail install DVD if you do not have one.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    Carbon Copy Cloner = cheaper, and IME better version of SuperDuper (I own both, btw).
