A NAS, for home backup, seems attractive.  Any of you have strong
recommendations these days?

Looks like there are 1Tb NAS boxes on Amazon in the $150-$200 range, and NAS
boxes with pairs of 1Tb disks, RAIDed in some cases, in the $250-$350

Kristina and I normally both use Linux laptops, but we have a pair of old
Mac laptops that we could stand to dump to a file server, too.

The Linux boxes have 80G disks, and I think my Mac has a 40Gb hard disk and
hers has a 20Gb hard disk, so it's not like we need an 8Tb file-server or
anything. :-)  Still, having a Terabyte or two available as backup storage,
with some sort of rsyncing going on would be comforting.

What would you suggest?
