    external Backup drive size
    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?

    Thanks
    Gary

    Specs:
    Macbook 2.0ghz, Macbook 2.2ghz, eMac G4 1.07ghz, PowerMac G4 Digital Audio.
    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
