You can buy 500GB notebook drives too, drives are very cheap now. Just be careful to buy the thinner ones, the thicker ones won't fit.

Tape can be the smartest way to store as in an archival medium, but sharing and distribution are likely different, but that depends on considerations and circumstances.

True, though Picasa is a good example of a program that can handle 25k+ pictures without so much as a blink. Aperture and iPhoto can be pretty sluggish. I think the two companies can learn from each other.

One year and a half and one year, respectively. The CPUs really weren't updated for the Mac Pro anyway, it's a bit too much to expect updates when new CPUs aren't available when Apple doesn't update Mac Pros until a new processor is available.
The mini has always been a second class citizen, I doubt that would ever change.

Face recognition is probably the best way to identify the person that the face is attached to.

Aperture is more than just a fancy photo manager. But if I had to do it again, I think I would give Lightroom a more serious look. I chose Aperture only because I got a very good deal at a CompUSA closing sale.
