    macbook pro backups question
    Okay, as far as backups go, I have time machine, 1 tb external hard drive, Icloud, and carbonite. Is this an overkill? I was think of letting Carbonite expire and use the others. What do you think?

    More backups than you need is better than no backups. It's up to you whether or not to let Carbonite expire. You do have plenty of redundancy.

    You don't have iCloud. That doesn't arrive until the fall.
