    Hi all, need some advice/info again. To begin with I have a MacBook air, iPad (16gb wifi), and roughly 250gb of iTunes media content. Currently I have all my iTunes media stored on an external seagate drive I carry around with my MacBook.

    I have been thinking of picking up the 2Tb time capsule and locating my iTunes media onto that. However I am curious, if I do that will I be able to access my iTunes media when I'm away from home?

    I don't know the answer to your question, but if you do move your iTunes media onto a Time Capsule, I'm pretty sure that it won't be backed up by Time Machine. You'll have to come up with another backup plan for anything stored on the Time Capsule itself.
