I'm an all laptop environment at home as well, that's why I went with the NAS solution as I also do not like leaving computers on all the time. The NAS does have to stay on all the time, but they suck very little power, especially if you let the hard drives go to sleep when not in use - all computers can be powered off. If you don't want to leave anything on, then the NAS will be more trouble than it's worth.
