    Specs:
    Imac 27" Retina 5K, 512GB flash memory, 3.3GHz, 16GB memory, macOS Sierra beta.
    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).
