I've decided to pull the trigger on the new mini base model. Will be used as a HTPC, may use XBMC just discovered it. I have 2 ATV 2's I've been experimenting with and love being able to play movies throughout the house. Past 2 weeks I've been converting my DVD's and Blu ray's over. I have a ton of movies that are in AVI so that is where XBMC may be better than converting everything over. I've found a program to play blu rays with ext Blu Ray player I already have. Thinking about getting the new Time Capsule with the TB hard drive to store everything. May buy a 3TB as a backup drive. Currently have an airport extreme that is 2 years old and doesn't get a good signal from basement to 2nd floor, new Time Capsule seems to have a stronger signal. My current laptop is a 2011 13" MBP 1TB with 8gb of ram. But I'm thinking of getting the 11" MBA. Also have a 3G iPad 2, and will get the new iPhone when it comes out, lost my old one and a trip to San Fran a month ago. Some questions: 1. Is there a good free decryptor for Mac. I've been using MAkeMKV which works but is time consuming to extract everything then use hand brake, seems to take for ever. I've used DVDfab on windows and is fast 30mins for a DVD. 2. Any ideas on replacing the MBP with the MBA and syncing everything with the Time Capsule that way. Overall love the MBP and weight is not that heavy, but that little MBA is sexy and powerful.
