    We have used Macs for years, but as an expanding family/small business we need to look at how to share documents/music files/photos/etc easily and efficiently.

    We have a Macbook, timecapsule and iPad and are looking to buy a MacBook Air as well. I want to be able to put the big files (music, video and photos) on one machine and have them (easily) accessible to all devices. What is my best option? I am not sure whether i need a dedicated server (e.g. buy a mac mini running Lion server) or could i use the existing MacBook with Lion and put the big stuff on that. Is there another option (e.g. a hard drive attached to the timecapsule?) or other solution?

    Any direct advice (or links to useful info) would be much appreciated.
