Time Capsule

Today we will be talking about one of Apples newer products; The Time Capsule. With an interface as futuristic sounding as its name, the Time Capsule is two things: A backup hard drive, and a wireless base station. You can get the time capsule in either a 500 Gigabyte model, or a 1 Terabyte model. (1 Terabyte = 1,000 Gigabytes)
This is exclusively for Apple computers running OSX 10.5. When you set up your Time Capsule, you will see a handy interface screen with a simple setup. The setup is like this:

That's right! Simply, "On/Off" and you're done. The software will automatically back up your data at certain points, so if you delete something by accident, you can go back as far as you would like. (Hey, with 1,000 Gigabytes, you can store quite a long time period worth of files.)

You can get up to a 160GB hard drive, which is great for storing everything that you need. Also, this computer is small, so it won't take up any desk space! Take a look below to see it's size:
Now the thing about the Mac Mini is that it's aimed towards people who are looking for just that; A new computer.

Today we're discussing the Macbook. Apple's all-around laptop. Apple currently has this released in two flavors:Black, and white.
Now, keep in mind this is just cosmetics. Internals is another story. This laptop can handle most any of your everyday tasks. You can order this with up to 250GB storage. You can also get a processor that is up to 2.4GHz, although this has no video card. The video card is covered by the (up to) 4GB of RAM. The RAM is shared to cover the video tasks and the application tasks.

This means that the Macbook is perfect for the average user, who is looking for portability. However, if you're wanting to run some processor intensive games (FPS, for example), then see the Macbook Pro, a few posts below this one.

Software wise, if you're not quite sold on OSX, it does everything windows does. Well... Not everything. There are not any viruses or spyware, like on other (*cough*Windows*cough*) Operating systems. And even PC World magazine has given mac praise, while comparing it to a Windows computer. If you're worried about applications that you rely on for work, or for personal life, fear not! Apple computers (With the Intel Processor) can install the Windows operating system on the same hard drive, so you can boot in Windows, or in OSX. There are even some applications out there that allow you to install Windows applications directly onto an Apple computer. So there are no worries when switching from a Windows computer to an Apple.
