Every laptop I've bought since, I've used the Nifty Drive as my Time Machine backup system. It works so well and as long as you tell it not to backup music and film files you have enough space. I also like that you can encrypt a microSD card when working on client data and then swap it out for another clients MicroSD card. I now don't feel so bad for not buying the large memory on my MacBook Pro when ordering it, as I can expand the MacBook Pro to have enough memory always.
