Hi there. I'm new to posting on the forum but I have been reading for a few weeks now. I am a PC user who has long been interested in making the switch. The Macbook looks great and I plan on picking one up, but I did have a few questions that I hope someone can answer. I searched the forum but did not find any previous posts about this. I currently own a Buffalo Terastation, which is a RAID 5 network attached storage (NAS) device. Basically it is like a big external hard drive that is accessed over my LAN. In Windows, I have the "My Documents" folder set to read directly from this NAS, so none of my folders are actually stored locally on my machine. Also, my entire iTunes catalogue (120GB worth) sits on the NAS, and my pictures are there as well. Basically I keep everything there. When I make the big switch to the Macbook, I was wondering if I will still be able to fully enjoy things like Spotlight, iPhoto, and iTunes integration if my files do not actually reside on my local hard drive. Will the Mac be ok indexing this stuff? Can I change my "Home" directory to be located on the NAS? Can I index and tag my photos in iPhoto without moving them? Thanks in advance. This forum has lots of great advice!
