Hi all! I'm a long time PC user finally looking to take the plunge into the Apple eco system. I've tried making my own eco system at work using my W7 PC+PS3 but it's quite kludgy and never works quite right. My PC is about 6 years old now so it's the perfect time to consider the jump. My main goal is to have a seamless eco system in my house. What I want: While at home (or even away - is this possible?) to be able to stream/access music/photos/etc from a central server-like computer. This "server" will store all of those things. I would also run a TV streaming device from this "server" (Apple TV, Roku, whatever) to stream to any computer/TV in the house. Those are the main use case scenarios. My consideration is to buy a refurbished mac mini+MBA or an EHD (network it) plus MBA. The former - mac mini option - would plug into my TV in the living room and would server as either a storage device or even a computer downstairs using my plasma (if I need to). Is the first option overkill for what I want? I'm not a gamer and not a video editor - I dabble in photography and do SOME light editing, I surf, email, etc. The usual. Questions such as: "can I run itunes off a laptop in the house while accessing songs on an external drive or mac mini", etc, are plenty! Thoughts? Many thanks!
