Is Time Machine an app/utility that comes with the machine or do you buy it separately?

It comes with it. You need to supply the external hard drive, but the software is already there. All you do is plug in the hard drive and time machine will automatically recognize it is there and start backing up every hour. You can change the settings to make it back up more frequently or less frequently. You can also exclude files or folders from being backed up if you want. If you power down or go into sleep mode or unplug the hard drive or something like that while it is backing up then it will pick up where it left off when you power up again or plug the hard drive back in.

Also and external hard drive will hold the whole thing from programs, Jump drives won't. I lost some important stuff to jump drives, that I won't have with a stick. Also make sure you don't have to us an AC adaptor, but you can if you want. I have had several externals and like my Toshiba the best. Barbara has a Western Digital that is very good too, and is about the size of a deck of playing cards:) Both were way under a $100 dollars :)

Love and Hugs, James
