Posted this in the Apple Home Theater section, and didn't get a whole lot of feedback. One person did mention that since most of my content is in iTunes, that an Apple TV 2 make sense for me, but I thought I'd post the same questions here and see what other info I could get: I'm thinking about getting a Mac Mini. As of right now all my movies/tv shows are stored on a 2tb external drive connected to my iMac. I sync my iphone/ipad with this iMac. If I move the external hard drive to the Mac Mini, is there any way I can still sync via the iMac and still have access to the files on the external hard drive? If not, what is the best solution to this? Also, I'm still debating on if I should purchase the Mac Mini at all. I've been satisfied with my Apple TV 2, but the idea of having a full fledged Mac (with 1080p capability) connected to my TV sounds nice. Is it really worth it?
