He's not going to get a modern computer just yet (but boy will he be glad when the time comes!).<br><br>The advice I gave him today was to bite the bullet and get a time capsule. It has a lan port so that he may connect directly to the router (no airport needed), plus he'll have an external drive on which to back stuff up (albeit manually), which is never a bad idea. <br><br>When he gets a new computer, he'll get to enjoy the fruits of Time Machine. <br><br>Sound advice? <br><br>
