I'm starting a side line business from home in the next couple of months, which will hopefully lead to a full time move. To start off with I've already have one 15" mbp i7, one 4th gen mb and one 27" i7 on potential order. There are four windows based pc's which i can't wait to get rid of and would rather not use. I'd love a MP but that's out of my budget for the moment. Growth in budget and future requirements allowing. I eventually foresee a need for three to four 27" iMac i7's. One or two may get external displays but not to start with and three 15" MBP i7's and one 1080p tv. Eventually...... eventually a nice spec'ed MP.........i wish. So about severn computers and one telly. I'm looking into buying a mini server in the next couple of weeks, to start running the 40" TV and a 27" ACD to show completed videos to clients. and have the two mb's linked wirelessly if possible (using a cable isn't a deal breaker) and the iMac cable linked as well. Some of my queries are; as i can't ask the IT guys at work without raising suspicion. Assume on using about 6 to 8 TB of storage plugged into the mini server which will mainly contain video files of around 150 to 450 mb's each that all the computers would need access to, plus the ubiquitous pages and numbers documents, e-mail and some drawings. would be nice to share an itunes library too but not crucial. Ideally I'd like to link the TV to the mini server and the 27" ACD rather than buy another mac mini just for the role. Can the mini server still be used as a computer in it's own right and still handle the server role. Is it capable of running a network of this size. Am I better to go with a dual processor Mac Pro and use that as the server instead also substituting one of the iMac's?? Aany advise or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
