Want to remove PC but save pics.

I want to remove our desktop as we no longer use it as we use our phones and tablets more often. The PC has a lot of old pics that I want to keep and I'd also like something to transfer our phone and tablet pics to in future. Is a portable hard drive the answer and if so could I view it's content through Ipad or should I invest in a laptop to use to view and transfer content?

a NAS Drive is probably your best solution. They are designed to run 24/7 and be accessible by anyone who is on your Home Network, whether they be on a Phone, Tablet, Laptop or PC.

Cheers wee eddie. I'll check it out.

I am thinking of going a similar route, but also plan to have a Docking Station, so that I may connect all the Printers, Scanners, Speakers and other paraphernalia that one accumulates over the years
