Nevermind the title, its Friday, have a drink... :)

On to my real question that I am hoping to get some help with. I have an iMAC on the way, a Macbook Pro already, an iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and a NAS at home and I am trying to figure out a way to share centralized data between them all.

I am mainly concerned about the following:

iTunes Library
iPhoto Library

What is the best way to manage these centrally so all devices have access to one iTunes library and the laptop can share the iPhoto library to make albums and see photos etc?

Is using the itunes server on a NAS limiting or is it better to use the iMAC to play host to all devices and perhaps store the files on the NAS.

Please help, really looking to get this set up in the next few weeks.
