I'm looking to get an external drive to use with TimeMachine for backing up my iMac (500Gb) and two MacBooks (about 75Gb each I think). The question I have is what size of drive should I be looking for to cater for backing up all three Macs,assuming worst case that all Macs are running near capacity?

QUOTE Thanks

With the price of external hard drives being what it is ...why not splurge and get at least a 1TB drive? I think you'll be happy
