Mac mini with Snow Leopard Server allows customers to bring a server into their small business or departmental workgroup. It's a complete solution that comes preloaded with Mac OS X Snow Leopard Server, and it's the easiest way to set up and deploy a server to support Mac and Windows clients as well as iPads and iPhones. And because it includes an unlimited client license for Mac OS X Server, you'll pay no additional client license fees as your organization grows.
Mac mini features an all-new, 1.4-inch-thin aluminum enclosure. It's called the unibody - a seamless enclosure carved from a single, solid block of aluminum. The unibody construction was originally developed for Apple's MacBook Pro. It's created using computer numerical control, or CNC, machines - the same kind used by the aerospace industry to build mission-critical spacecraft components. This ensures absolute precision of every component of the Mac mini enclosure. Not to mention a stunning aluminum fit and finish that will make any desk proud. NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics processor with 256MB DDR3 Shared Video Memory Built-in AirPort Extreme Wi-Fi (802.11n) Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR 10/100/1000BASE-T (Gigabit) Ethernet with support for jumbo frames Audio - Built-in speaker, combined Optical Digital audio input/audio line in, combined optical digital audio output/headphone out Ports - 4 x USB 2.0, FireWire 800, Mini DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI (via adapter), RJ-45, SD card slot Approximate Unit Dimensions (HxWxD) - 1.4 x 7.7 x 7.7 inches Approximate Unit Weight - 2.8 pounds
Mac mini with Snow Leopard Server is specifically designed to be a server. There are two 500 GB 7200-rpm hard drives with plenty of storage to help your group work more efficiently. It comes with unlimited client licenses. And you can access and swap files quickly and securely between Mac computers and PCs. Easily create full-featured wikis and high-quality podcasts. And automatically back up all your important data.
This version of the Mac mini with Snow Leopard Server (model MC438LL/A) features a faster Intel Core 2 Duo processor and next-generation NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics as well as 4 GB of RAM (expandable to 8 GB) and dual 500 GB hard drives (see full specifications below). It comes pre-loaded with Apple's Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard Server operating system--offering 64-bit power and up to twice as fast as its predecessor.
This Mac comes pre-installed with OS X Snow Leopard Server, but you can order a free upgrade to OS X Lion Server via Apple's OS X Lion Server Up-To-Date program for a limited time (depending on the date of your purchase).
If you purchased a new Mac with OS X Snow Leopard Server from Amazon between these dates, you must enter your order from the Apple Online Store by August 19, 2011.
If you purchased a new Mac with OS X Snow Leopard Server from Amazon after the official OS X Lion Server release date (on or after July 21, 2011), you must enter your order within 30 days of the date of your purchase.
Learn more about the OS X Lion Server Up-To-Date Program and enter your order at Apple.com.
The Mac mini with Snow Leopard Server is a great choice for sharing files, calendars, and e-mail amongst users in a workgroup or small business--whether it be on a Mac, an iPad, or an iPhone. It replaces the SuperDrive found on the standard Mac min with two 500 GB hard drives (for a 1 TB total), providing a wealth of storage for active files as well as backing up all your important data using Time Machine. And Snow Leopard Server is easy enough to run even by people who have never thought of running server software before.
Featuring a new unibody construction, the Mac mini reduces its footprint over its predecessor by 20 percent. It even houses its own integrated power supply into the 7.7-inch square aluminum enclosure (that's also 1.4 inches thin)--eliminating the need for an external power brick (as the previous version of the Mac mini had). Additionally, the Mac mini helps contain your environmental footprint with a 10 watt power consumption--a 25 percent reduction from the previous generation.
But despite its smaller size, the Mac mini offers a full range of ports for connecting to your existing peripherals--from keyboards and mice to external hard drives and displays (now via the HDMI port). And when you're ready to add more memory, the Mac mini's bottom removable panel makes the upgrade process a breeze.
Combining fast processing speeds with power-saving features, the Intel Core 2 Duo processor provides greater multitasking performance by combining two independent processor cores while also reducing power requirements and saving on battery life. This Intel Core 2 Duo processor has a 2.66 GHz processor speed, speedy 1066 MHz front-side bus (FSB), and 3 MB L2 cache. (An L2, or secondary, cache temporarily stores data; and a larger L2 cache can help speed up your system's performance. The FSB carries data between the CPU and RAM, and a faster front-side bus will deliver better overall performance.)
Powered by the NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics card, the Mac mini allows you to view flawless video in full screen HD and play the latest games with fast frame rate. It's a great match to editing video masterpieces with iMovie and managing your photos in iPhoto, and it comes with 256 MB of DDR3 SDRAM that's shared with main memory.

I bought and loved the last generation of the mini server, with the 5400 rpm drive. And this new one is even better.

It's a very good compact machine. It sexy and runs quiet! However the super compact design does raise the temperature quickly to 80 C mark and stays there when the CPU is above... Read morePublished on October 2, 2010 by JSK
