it would be close. if you leave the internal disk on the client machine, users can save data to it.
i wouldn't use 802.11n for netboot clients. it may work, but at some point you'll likely experience network dropouts, which would be like pulling the plug on a netbooted system. for the most reliable results, you'll want at least 100 base-t or greater ethernet. you don't necessarily have to reqire your whole home for this. depending on the number of machines involved, you might only need a few runs from a decent switch in the middle.
again, while it's technically possible with recent macs (like the macbook air), i don't recommend netbooting over wireless.
So from this, it is to be gathered that NetBoot is something exclusively meant for stationary Macs it's not even an option with regards to mobile Macs? If I want to manage mobile Macs such as MacBook Pros etc. that are wireless by design what would be the ideal way? I would assume Portable Home Directories?
