We've compared external hard drives compatible with Mac computers from Amazon Australia to see how their prices stack up against other Aussie retailers.
If you’re like us, you’ve lost countless photos, videos and important documents to the void. When a home computer kicks the bucket, it’s not pretty for anybody. Not only do you have to fork out for the repairs (which often end up more expensive than just buying a new computer) but unless you’ve been organised enough to secure your personal data, you can kiss those holiday photos, unfinished manuscripts and important work documents goodbye.
The sad thing is, this can always be prevented if you just backup your data on an external hard drive. These days, you can pick up an external hard drive with up to 16TB worth of storage (that’s a lot of photos) which will have no problem fitting a lifetime of photos and videos. However, it’s always smart to have multiple backups, so consider that before diving in.
We’ve compared the most popular options for Mac below, so you can use our tables to compare each product side-by-side.
