    meaning, can i still play my mac games on it? ( of course i will get the usb dvd super drive ), can i still use all my other mac programs regularly?
    will i lose some features by going with the macmini server?

    thanks in advance

    other than losing the dvd drive in favour of a second hard drive. no you wont loose anything over the standard one

    You could no probs, assuming you have a copy of Snow Leopard.

    Why would you want this mini? why not just regular, cheaper one:confused:

    He wouldn't need a different install of his OS, the Server OS isn't really much different from the regular version. Any program will run just fine on it.
