Buffalo’s MiniStation TurboUSB hard drive, launched back in February, has had a bit of a makeover to make it more friendly to Mac users.
In truth, it’s always been usable with OS X, but now the casing has turned a shade of white, which possibly makes it more attractive to Apple-ites.
Four capacities — 160GB, 250GB, 320GB and 500GB — and fully compatible with OS X’s Time Machine, or indeed any other software backup solution you might happen to use…
Steve Jobs today announced a new hardware and software combo designed to make backing up multiple Macs over a wireless network as painless as possible.
The Time Capsule hardware is a revamped 802.11n Wi-Fi base station (Airport Extreme) with a built in server grade hard drive with either 500GB or 1TB capacity.
Introduced by Jobs as a much more convenient way of backing up notebook Macs (no-one wants the hassle of connecting cables to an external hard drive, he said) but usable by any OS X Leopard-equipped Macs.
Software-wise, it utilises the Time Machine functionality introduced in Leopard.
