I purchased a MacBook Pro recently. I already had an extensive collection of photos on a 1TB external hard drive. I love iPhoto and would love to use it to manage all my photos, including the ones I had prior to purchasing the MacBook. My first thought was to buy an AirPort Extreme and share the external drive via WiFi. For iTunes, it works great, but with iPhoto is unbearably slow. I guess I could move all the pictures from my external drive onto the MacBook hard drive, but I'd rather not do that. At the same time, having to access an external hard drive directly sort of defeats the point of the mobility of a notebook. I'm sure I can't be unique in this predicament...what's the best solution?
