Can I access the Time Capsule from multiple Mac Books at the same time?

I currently have 4 MacBook Pros and need to be able to share files locally in our office, outside of our company network.

    In a word — yes. Time Capsule can support multiple machines, but if two or more are attempting a backup at the same time, each backup will take a bit longer than it would if it were the only one backing up. However, I have multiple computers backing up to a single Time Capsule and there is enough randomness it when the Time Machine backups occur, it is rare that any two machines are backing up at the same time.
