I primarily had my music stored on my Mac Book, but once that got too small I bought a 400 GB networked hard drive and started storing my music there.
There’s nothing more frustrating than having to switch computers or log in and out of multiple Apple i Tunes accounts just to access the music, videos, and apps you have downloaded as a different user or on a new device.
This means that i Tunes will be accessing each song directly, wherever it may be on your computer.
This also means that i Tunes will locate all music on your computer and add it automatically, making the i Tunes consolidation process much faster than manually adding music.
