2TB will probably be plenty. 2TB is = 2048GB and your devices total 896GB(assuming the HDs are full so I personally wouldn't buy more than 2TB at the moment but it really depends on if you were going to buy another macbook pro/mac air). If it gets full you can always attach another HD to the USB port.
Hope that helps.

Multiple WAN addresses
My ISP allowed me a /30 subnet, so I can use multiple static IPs.

Windows 7 laptop migration to MacBook Pro via AirPort Time Capsule
I would like to migrate my data files from a Windows 7 laptop (documents, pictures, music) to a MacBook Pro, probably using an external hard drive. Can I treat the AirPort Time Capsule as an external hard drive for both machines via the USB port?

is there any way to do archival storage ( storage to a drive which you store off-site in case of fire/flood/theft ), other than the woefully slow USB2Answer
You can mount is as a drive in Finder and so in turn can back it up using one of the commercial online backup providers (Crashplan, Mozy, Amazon, etc.)
Or if you have access to, say, a friend's network use free tools such as Rsync (I use the DropSync GUI, available from App Store) to automatically back it up.
I use both of these options for my critical data - cloud backup (guaranteed but slow) and Rsync to a Mac Mini server at a friend's house.

What are my options to have an online backup for the airport time capsule
I am planning to purchase an AirPort Time Capsule to act as a NAS, so my iPhoto and iTunes folders will be located on it.
I hope this plan makes sense and other people are doing the same.
There shouldn't be any problem with this, but I would like to have it backed up online, in case it fails.
Do I have to run backup software such as CrashPlan from my macbook in order to have that, or does this device supports any type of online backup out of the box?

As a PC user wanting this is a router and an external hard drive. Is there any difference between this and the previous 2011 Time Capsule model?
I.e. will the differences in wireless speed be apparent on a PC.

Should be. You would want an additional drive to do backups to though.

Yes. The iPad will connect to the Time Capsule just like it does with any WiFi network. You will need either:
1. Mac with OS X Lion v10.7.5 or later and AirPort Utility 6.3 or
2. iOS device with iOS 5 or later and AirPort Utility 1.3
to control the TC.
