    Hey guys, i'm about to get a mac mini.

    I will use this mac mini for my main computer until the iMac 27" launches. When it launches i will use the mini as a server, this will be on 24H.

    These are the main purposes:

    *Serve my iMac and apple tv with content.

    *Minecraft server.

    *Handbrake encoding.


    Which one to get? My spontaneous thought was the mini server with the 2TB, but the mid range still with i7 sounds pretty good too me, don't really need the extra 1TB anyways. Maybe even the base model will do fine? :rolleyes:

    What do you guys think? :confused:

    Regards, Marvin.

    If you don't need the extra space, then get the mid i would say. You can pick up OS X Server for something like £20 if you need it aswell.
