Sorry. I missed your title. I have a 13" MacBook connected to a Drobo. My Drobo has all of the media on it, and the MacBook is the home server. It works great. Note that a Drobo (or other RAID device) only protects against drive failures, and still needs to be backed up if you value the data on it.
Please link to the "how", as Apple doesn't support it.
As a backup device, the Time Capsule drive can fail and you haven't lost any data because it's still on your Mac. You replace the TC drive, and off you go.
Airport Extreme does not support Time Machine. As for Time Capsule, I guess some fail and some don't. But why do you say it's not upgradeable? Apple has updated the software several times, and you can easily swap the hard drive.
He did seem to say that, but the TC is *not* a cable modem. There are too many different ways people connect to the internet. That's why the Apple products just stick to ethernet for the physical connection. Adding extra hardware in there would only benefit a few, but cost everyone.
For me, a USB drive is fast enough.
$29.99 plus tax, actually.
It's no big deal. It takes a day or two to get used to it. If you can't or don't want to, you can change it in System Prefs.
Instead of switching it back immediately, try the new way. It took me about a day to get used to it.
I find macupdate.com is the easiest way to find stuff.
