Dear all, I'm a longtime Windows user, who is transitioning from a all-Windows to pure Apple setup. And I'm an Apple newbie (virgin?). I currently have a Windows HTPC which also does basic file and printer sharing, and a stationary PC, and a laptop. Reading Apple forums, I see frequent mentioning of not getting a NAS for home storage, and instead getting a Mac Mini with the OSX Server app. I a 'techie' home network with 2-3 computers, what are the use cases where Mac Mini + OSX Server are better than a NAS -- what is it used for? I understand that Time Machine backups to 3rd party NAS can be a bit unreliable when new releases of OSX/Time Machine are made. So that's one fair use case for OSX Server. Which other ones are there? If you were starting from scratch now, and planned to have a desktop + ipad + iphone, would you get a NAS or Mac Mini for file storage? Why? I don't have unlimited funds, but I will pay for quality and longevity. Thanks!
