    NAS and two back up discs each equivalent in size to the data on the NAS. We’re using a Synology DS216+II at work as JBOD with two USB3 drives to keep copies on. It will also run a media server for you but the transcoding may be a little slow. (It won’t run Plex. If you’re looking to do that be prepared to fork out if you want to do that on a NAS).

    I use my ipad mini most of the time at home, but when I want proper keyboard the Chromebook is a winner. Recently bought a new and uber fast one after recommendations on here.

    this one

    though it was a lot less a few weeks back….

    Does look nice that but yes, not cheap!

    Despite working in IT, I’ve little to no idea about this kind of thing, I do software development and although I know how to plug stuff in (back in the day I used to set up servers and networks), I’m lost when it comes to NAS and the like, the support lads do all that now

    Could always combine options – bluetooth keyboard for the tablet, add a laptop or chromebook so we have a device each (as opposed to one of us waiting when the other is using it). I do think a NAS is the way forward though

    Since we got a tablet, we’ve very rarely used the PC upstairs as it’s SOOO SLLLLLLOOOOOOOOWWWWWWW, but we’re both missing using a proper keyboard. Do we
    a) get a bluetooth keyboard for the tablet
    b) get a new chromebook
    c) get an laptop
    d) get a new PC

    Might also need to consider a NAS, so that we can access photos and things from more devices – currently all on a disk in the PC (backed up at work too) so if the PC goes, want to mantain access

    Constructive feedback and suggestions welcomed, please.
