Hi all!

Thought I'd come here for some help - I am about to move into a new flat in a few months and wanted to arrange all my computer bits and bobs!
I was thinking of having my old Mini as a music and photo server, attached to the TV - obviously having all the music and photos stored there! For my day to day web browsing and bits of office work I was thinking of getting a new MacBook.
Now what i was thinking was - could I browse the mini's music from the laptop and get the music to play from a set of speakers attached via airtunes.

Just trying to think of the best possible setup - at the end of the day I don't want to always switch the tv to the mini just to play the music!

Any help will, for lack of a better word, help!

So far I don't see any problems in your setup.

#1. Just have your mac mini share its entire library (in preferences via itunes).
#2. Have itunes on the macbook look for shared music (also in preferences).
#3. On your macbook, have itunes connect to airtunes.

Another option...

If you already have your computers networked/no AE, then have your speakers connected to your mini and have your macbook control the mini through remote desktop or other software.
