Storage for macbook

I have a macbook, and I really need to get easy wireless storage. I have looked at the 'Time Capsule' on, but I was just wondering if there was a cheeper alternative.

Yes there is a cheaper alternative.

The Airport Extreme router comes with a USB port that supports external storage devices. Instead of using the TC's built in HDD. You can simply purchase the AE and plug an external USB drive.

The advantage of the TC is just how neat and convenient everything is. Do note though that users have reported the TC wifi connection being markedly slower than the AE. I've had the experience myself. TC was a huge let down.

I don't think there is another wireless option? You will probably have to buy an external hard drive and use your USB port. That will be your cheapest option.

MacBook Air ? mark flashing

Short answer -> If the flashing icon is a question mark on a folder, it means that your MacBook cannot find a bootable drive.

Longer answer-> If you have an Apple store near you, they can diagnose it more thoroughly. If you have been doing periodic backups to a Time Capsule or other device, take that with you.

Why does the error code ox80020022 on mac when try to burn a cd

Communication between your computer and disk drive have failed. Try a different disk. If you lower the burn speed it may help you get the job done. Put it to about 24X and see if that works.

Low memory/ storage space

You haven't really given me anything to go on. If this is a case of hard drive space disappearing or if you've just filled up your drive and have lots of things running in the background. More info please.

Where can I do a trade-up with my Apple products (macbook, time capsule, etc. but mainly the macbook)? Either on line or somewhere in SoCal - Los Angeles.

Apple does not (to my knowledge at the time of this writing) have a trade-up program. I would suggest selling it yourself (ebay/craigslist/amazon) and use the proceeds to purchase a new Mac.
