Having just moved house with the girlfriend, my current project is to kit out the house. Whilst we have loads of ideas for the interior and furniture (all the boring stuff), I'm sorting out the tech. I was originally going to have a NAS-like set-up (running Win08 R2), feeding out content to a few RaspberryPi/TV combos in the Office/Lounge/Bedroom(s) and our laptops and mobile devices via WiFi. But I've never considered a Mac Mini to be the nerve centre . Obviously I'm paying a slightly higher premium for it, as it's Apple and my preferred OS (no exp with Mac Server though). But I can justify these by using it as a separate box as well (via remote desktop). Are there any hidden features that spring to mind regarding either the hardware or software which I've not considered and thus make me say WANT!? I'll be keeping it for years, or at least the medium/distant future so how is the longevity? Is the WiFi within the hardware good enough to spread a standard British home (don't want connections dropping - only a 3 bedroom)? I know it's slightly vague but then again, I've not considered it until I sprawled through the 'post your desktop' thread and I noticed them everywhere. Therefore apologies if it's been asked a million times. I'm more interested in your experience with it, how you'd rate Mac Server (compared with Windows variant - I work with these everyday) and your general media server set-up. Cheers.
