My MacBook Pro is running out of space, I have an external HD but don't want it attached to the mac. I've thought of buying a mac mini but can't justify the price for what is essentially a media server. I have an old Asus eeepc 901 netbook that I never use. If I attached my external HD to it and used that as the main iTunes library for the house, will I be able to use this to feed my apple tv and MBP? Is there any disadvantages with using home sharing as opposed to having the library local ?
