    Hi

    Can you guys share how you organise your data when you need access to it from multiple computers?

    I currently have everything on my imac, backign up to a USB HDD. But I'll be adding a macbook soon and need to plan how to organise things.

    NAS? how is the throughput if you use a NAS for your photos/docs and need to work on them? Mirror data across each machine?

    I have an iMac and an iBook. I'm like most people -- most of my files are contained in my iTunes library (30GB) and my iPhoto library (10GB). I wanted to use my iMac as a file server for my iBook. Luckily both applications have built-in wireless file sharing that work very well. Just a matter of a couple of check-marks in the Preferences and you're all set. The access speed is virtually instantaneous as far as I'm concerned. :apple:
