    Has anyone seen or heard what the official system requirements are for Lion, aside from needing SL?

    At this point I think it's safe to assume the same system requirements for the final release as for the GM build released to developers. The most important of these requirements are Core 2 Duo, Core iX series CPU or newer, 2GB RAM or more.

    Probably not since apple has not officially released Lion yet.

    I have an old 1.83 Core (1) Duo Mac Mini that I just decommissioned and plan to wipe. With it not supporting Lion, any suggestions what to do with it? It was running as a fileserver/iTunes server to AppleTV's and such.

    The reason I asked was because I have a Macbook Core Duo, so you and I are somewhat in the same boat. I would continue using it as a server if you haven't replaced it.

    I've always put Linux on old Apple-deprecated Macs. All Apple products use DAAP for network streaming which is broadly supported on all platforms.
