Ok I have 2 laptops. 1 is Windows and 1 is Mac. I also have lots of music...
I want a system whereby I can store all my music in 1 place, that can be accessed by both machines. Sounds to me like a NAS/Network external drive should suit this. Am I correct?
Or is there a better option?
As well; I would possibly like to be able to set up Time Machine for the mac, (and use the drive as general backup for the windows laptop and all files) - would this be possible?
And Re the music accessible by both laptops, how fast is a NAS? Would the music be able to be in the itunes library of both computer and play ok with no problems - or does it not work like that?
Any ideas, better solutions, or just 'yep get that'...
All help really so appreciated
P.S. I know apple offer some expensive router/hd solution, well i don't know exactly. But i'm just spending a quick £80 on a simple NAS.
