    I got a Macbook Air that I use as my primary machine. I thought of getting a Mac Mini to hook up to my television for casual use in the living room, as it can be an alternative to the MBA superdrive as well. I was wondering if I can use the Mac Mini for some extra space for my media library as im running out on my MBA.
