Hey everyone, I have been a long time iPhone/iPad user (since each came out, new one ever year like most of you) but have yet to make the switch to Macs for my computers at home. I'm considering doing this now but have a few questions for you mac gurus. I'll preface this by saying I have worked with PCs for almost 20 years, work in IT and have a solid technical background; just not with the Mac environment. My main uses are typical of everyone, browsing the web, office, etc, however I do photography as a hobby (and slight side business for friends and family) and that's where my confusion lies. My current set up is a desktop in the office with a 1 TB hard drive and 24" IPS monitor, and 2 laptops. I have a NAS drive in the basement with an automated backup of the desktop. I use Windows Live Mesh to sync my photo library and important files between the laptops and the desktop to assure each machine always has the latest versions and this way the latest is always backed up to the NAS drive. I also back up my photos on an external hard drive monthly. So that's what I have. What I want is to be able to edit my photos on the laptop but have them accessible to other machines in the house (so my wife can look at them when I'm away, etc.). Maybe still keep a desktop (mini?) in the office. So what do you guys recommend? I've considered a mini with server, the NAS for time machine and a mbp for laptop but not sure how to configure this for images/redundancy and backup? Please help me build my new system Thanks!
