OK, this thread may be useless, but I just wanted to share that I am now the proud new owner of a Mac mini Server 2011 version. Thanks to the advice I got on this forum, I upgraded it with a 6G SSD from OWC and a full 16 Gb of RAM The result is a fast fast machine.... I am coming from a 2008 Mac Pro and, quite frankly, the new system actually feels faster than the 3 year old machine... I regularly use Aperture - I was a bit anxious because of the limited video card in the mini Server, but the result is satisfactory (I guess the 16 Gb of RAM help). Also, for those who are interested, the system works well with a 30 inch NEC Multisync 3090WQXi display, using the dual-link adapter. The result is a great system and a huge gain of space in my office.
