So my wife and I are using my black Macbook (Yes, I know, old), and at some point I want to replace it with two Macbook Pros, maybe even an Air.

Anyway, my Macbook has a 750 gig HD. Over 360 of that is in my movies, music and photos folder. Soooooo, since a lot of that is stuff we will both want to access, ideally I would have a hard drive accessible at all times to both comps via wifi, but not only that, we would want the files in both our libraries simultaneously.

Does anyone have a setup like this? The only way I know how to set this up right now is to use a 3rd comp and share the library over the wifi.

Thanks.

Check out Home Sharing

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
