Rather than jumping into the Drobo vs. Synology thread, I'm starting a new thread. I've been considering picking up a NAS for both (i) serving files and TM backups on the home network, and possibly remote access, and (ii) an initial set-up for an internet site -- my wife has obtained a domain name for a small business site she is contemplating, so I'm starting to explore whether/how to set it up serving from our home. Being new to this game, and just seeing someone in the D vs. S thread mention using a Mac Mini instead of a NAS, I'm looking for either comments on the +/- of using a Mini instead of a NAS (as in why?), and/or pointers to places where I can research/learn without bothering you all with a bunch of noob questions. Thanks!
