    I've been lurking for a while and on the fence about a new Mac Mini. Since I've given up on a Media Center PC with Blu Ray, I'm back to the Mac Mini. I've got two blu ray players and PS3, so I think we've got that covered!

    One of the things that I'd really like to have is maximum storage for the Mac Mini, since it will have the video and audio on there.

    The question is this. Is anyone out there running a Mac Mini Server with Snow Leopard installed as a regular desktop machine? How does that work out? Is it worth it? I already have a very nice external Lacie double layer DVD burner, so the optical drive isn't necessary for me. Does the Mini Server with its 1TB of storage make sense? At $849 for a refurb at, it seems pretty reasonable!

    Would love to hear thoughts from this crowd!

    I have it as our shared storage and backup server. Sits there silently protecting our data.
