Hi I need a new computer to store all of my pics and home movies. I think I'd like an iMac instead of a mac book pro - but hate the thought of being chained in the basement - only place it can go. If I get an Imac I know I could accesses the photos/movies apps remotely with an apple laptop - but I don't have any experience with this - would this be fast and easy enough to be realistic? I know I can do all of this through the cloud but would rather have a more "direct" option - not paying cloud fees for the rest of my life sounds nice too. Thanks for the help.
