Hi all. I initially posted this is the the MBA forum, however, as a lover all things iMac I should I have posted it here... Your feedback would be greatly appreciated.... Hey Everyone, So.... With the release of Mt. Lion, I, like many other Mac users, found out that Airplay Mirroring was not supported on my Late 2007 24inch iMac. This of course drove me nuts , and for the last several weeks i havent selpt thinking of how I am going to upgrade my main computer. I've been reading about an iMac refresh, but grew impatient and purchased a 2012 13inch MBA... Needless to say, I love it. It's an amazing computer, but my issue is that I'm not entirely sure that this puppy could serve as the hub or "center of my digital-life". I've never loved laptops... Prior to my iMac, i owned a Powerbook. It was a Champ until the Aluminum iMac was introduced... Anyway.. Ever since the iPad, i've only felt limited in doing just a certain amount of computer functions. One's that I had no problem going down to my dining room at 3:00am to do whatever I couldnt on the iPad. Now im conflicted in my decision and wonder if the MBA is everything that i'll need for my home. I'm running a terrabyte hard drive attached to my Airport Extreme, all media files are streamed to my apple Tv's from this drive, unless they were purchased from iTunes and streamed from the cloud. I do very light photo editing, no video editing, and use my Desktop (now MBA) to backup my iphone and ipad, store music, movies, and most importantly my photos. Finally my Question: Would i be better off with an iMac or Mac Mini? Or could the MBA do all of this (with super limited hard drive space) and some? Again, the MBA would never-ever leave my house. I honestly feel like it would also cannibalize the use of my iPad (because it's so darn awesome and thin) for my uses'. The Apple Specialists also made me a bit nervous by stressing the importance of AppleCare for the MBA - especially because only Apple can open/fix them. Looking forward to your input... -LZY PS. I've read that leaving an MBA plugged into its powercord for long durations can fry the battery. regardless of whether this is true or not, I loved the idea of having my iMac run for long periods of time without having to shut it off. Leaving the lid open on a sleeping MBA is also driving me crazy (and I've only owned it for 48 hours)!.
