    I am not new to mac devices but I am not an expert neither. I have seen here a lot of awesome setups and though I could use some help.

    Here is what I have:

    Airport Extreme with 1 TB Hard Drive
    Apple TV - Bedroom
    Macbook Pro 2008 - Snow Leopard
    Macbook Pro 2011 (business)
    2 iPads
    Living room -- nothing

    I currently have my macbook08 pointing to my iTunes library stored on my hard drive but I am having issues because every time the pc looses connection to the apple extreme it remove the Library path.

    I was thinking about purchasing an SSD and the video adapter to connect my mac08 in my living room to my TV. Also a firewire drive to store my iTunes library in there. Eventually I want to buy a mac mini to have it the way I want it.

    What do you guys think? I am open to suggestions.

    I think by the time you purchase an SSD and video adapter + the necessary cabling you should have just bought a mini. Its a much more elegant and reliable solution. I have my Mini connected to a large array of storage and an ATV in my living room. Its the best way to go.

    FWIW, I have had 2 extremes and have 3 express's. I no longer use the extremes. They constantly had connection issues with my atv.

    I now have a netgear, that has had 0 problems.
