Dropbox is great, but it's more of a syncing service than a backup service, so for each machine you connect you need to have enough storage space (at least at the minute).|
Jungle Disk ( https://www.jungledisk.com/ ) works like you describe - you tell it what folders to back up, and when to back up. It stores everything on Amazon S3, so the storage space is expandable and you pay for what you use rather than taking a plan for xxGB. It can be a bit slow accessing stuff from time to time, but I've found it to be solid, plus with a bit of shenanigans you can access your online disk from your iPhone, if you have such a thing
