    I'm thinking of buying the Airport Express along with my new MBP, as I need the Airtunes ability, so I don't have to fiddle with the optical cable to hear music.
    I can only stream music/sound from iTunes, correct? Not from FrontRow or anything else?
    From my PC days I have a Synology NAS which I plan to keep, as it offers some excellent features, but since the express only have 1 LAN port, I guess I will need an Extreme (or something similar) to be able to connect the Synology product (unless I hook it up directly to the MBP, which was not my intention), even if it support PPPOE so it can connect to my ISP without anything else.

    Hm, another thought just occurred, could I buy 2 express'es? - hook one up to the WAN and the other to my NAS (via ethernet, even if the LAN port is only 100mbit, the wireless is 300 and the NAS support 1gbps)??
