To save mounds of text, I've done a quick and easy diagram of my current tech setup to help illustrate my current situation: So, at the moment I'm having the following problems: - Time Capsule disk is full - Having the white MacBook on all the time (to watch media on Apple TV or access files) is too noisy and generates too much heat - Syncing the iPhone on the MacBook Air (by directing iTunes to the library file on the MacBook) takes forever - MacBook hard drive is filling up pretty fast with movies / TV shows - Can't access iTunes library outside the local network (not necessary, but would be nice!) - iTunes gets confused as to what photo libraries to share after being accessed on both computers I am aware that some new equipment is going to be needed, but I don't know what is the cheapest/best combination to go for. Will putting my iTunes library on the TC make syncing any faster? Could I share the iTunes library via Back to my Mac on the TC? Should I buy an external HD for my MacBook, or would a Mac mini be a better purchase in the long run? Any help / advice you can give will be much appreciated, and many thanks in advance!
