Acronis has one consideration which might be worth thinking of:

You must have it installed since the file system used is proprietary. That means that if you migrate it to another computer, it must be installed on that computer first or you will not be able to open any files.
Once I had a full back up from a computer and then I reformatted the disk. When I tried to restore the back up I could not do it because the new OP did not have Acronis installed.

The other thing is that you cannot open any of the backup files unless you use Acronis to do so.

There are other companies which do not use proprietary software which permit you to open the files from any generic OP without having to have a special program on the computer.

In regards to PC's I noticed that with Win 7 you can do image back up which is something that Microsoft did not accommodate before.
