I am replacing a PC in my house with a Macbook Air, and there are two primary functions that the Air won't replace:
- Streaming music to a whole-house audio system.
- A home-base for my main photo/video/document hard drive.
I'm interested in the AirPort Extreme for the network drive feature. But, sadly, it doesn't have AirPlay and audio out like the AirPort Express does. I can buy both... but I'd like to be able to take care of the two functions in one device. Are there any other solutions that might work for this?
I thought of buying an Apple TV instead of the Express — if I had to have two devices, am I missing anything by getting the TV instead of the Express? It seems like an obvious choice, so I feel like I must be missing something.
