Time Capsule

In essence Time Capsule is a wif-fi base station with a wireless hard drive that backs up your Mac or Macs using Timme Machine. 

It runs in your home in the background. If you are a snowbird you can transport it back and forth. It uses the faster 820.11ac protocol for faster uploads. There is also a USB port for wireless printing. Other external drives can be connected if space gets filled.

So the beauty of Time Capsule is that it is automatic. The cons are it isn’t off site and it is not a bootablre backup.

Currently they come in a 2TB or a 3TB hard drive configuration at a retail price of $299 and $399.
