Should I get cloud backup when I go to college?

Episode 1008 (46:22)

Kyle from Sparta, MI

Kyle is a senior and is looking for a laptop for college next year. He wants to know what computer he should get and if he needs cloud backup. Leo says that cloud backup is good for data like papers, schoolwork, etc, but media takes way too long. A local USB 3 external drive to backup to is still a good idea.

Leo says if Kyle can wait a few months for a laptop, he'll be able to take advantage of the Haswell based chips in ultrabooks.
