    It's a wireless router with built in hard drive. That way you can back up with being connected with wires. Also you can share the drive among other computers on the network.

    It's also called "Time Capsule" because it's made to work with Time Machine in Leopard to constantly back up your data.

    as long as you have leopard and the time capsule drive, it should work with any wirelessly enable mac I can vouch for time machine it's saved me many a headache since I have hyperfingers

    Are you able to use Time Capsule without using Time Machine though? For example, could I buy a Time Capsule and use it for storing videos and music on and use it to wirelessly share them around the house and accessible from different computers? Im wanting to get a Macbook Air but all of my music is stored on my mini. Could I get a Time Capsule, put all my iTunes music on it and then access the music in iTunes from the Time Capsule?

    Thanks in advance,

    Edward

    ...so yes, you can use it as a regular SMB file server. That's what I plan to use it for when it arrives the 10'th of March.
