Ok so I know this has probably be covered a hundred times in different forums, but I just need some advice and suggestions. I have done a lot of searches on mac mini's, AT2, and media centers and I can't decide what to do. I would like to have a home network that can do the following: Store all of my itunes music, movies and pictures on the network and be able to access them via iphone4, macbooks, and ipad. I would also like to play my music through my receiver via airplay. I have 200+ DVDs that over time I would like to rip to storage. I would also like a back up system that uses time machine for my macbook but also back up to another hard on occasion and store it in a fireproof safe. I have the following equipment now: Macbook, AEBS (running in bridge mode), AT&T Uverse internet connection, and AT2 available to buy from a friend for $50. All of my network stuff will be stored in my family room entertainment cabinet where my router, AEBS, and receiver are stored. So my question is what would you guys suggest I purchase to do this? Do I just purchase a Mac mini and run a large external hard drive 2-4T via firewire for storing the media with a smaller hard drive plugged into AEBS for time machine or do I just use an AT2 with a NAS? Sorry for the long post but I am so confused and my brain hurts from trying to figure this out.
