    I think so. The ability to connect to my son's Mac using mine to administer it is cool, but the ability to access my Time Capsule and the external hard drives connected to our AEBS from my Mac no matter where I am regardless if there is a computer connected to the AEBS is amazingly easy and cool. I was able to stream video from my shared media disk on our network at home to my Mac over the internet at the office and dragging/dropping files to it or grabbing a file from my Time Machine while on the road is just great.

    What a great feature.

    Don't you have to use the same MM account on both Macs to use this feature? I have one computer (MBP, soon to be MBA) but both an iPad and iPhone 4. For me, the iDisk feature is a boon. Allows me to access my files from any device, and in a browser on a friend's computer. Right now, I don't have any of my files on my computer. It's all on the iDisk except for a movie file and some wallpaper pictures on the desktop.

    Nope, you don't have to have accounts on both, just add your account to the other computers air disc set up.

    I am just getting into idisk now and am just starting to move files over to it, starting with pictures first. I was hoping Apple would release something similar to Amazon this month so I am holding out before moving my music there.
