    Yes, just about any external hard drive can be used to back up a computer. Mac computers have a feature called Time Machine which allows you to easily back up your computer. As long as the external hard drive has more storage than your computer (which it almost certainly will) you will be able to back up your macbook pro with this device.

    If you would like to use the external hard drive for both storage and backup, that's pretty easy to do as well. However, it would require a few initial steps before setting it up for backup. A quick google search could explain how to do that (it's not difficult to do).
