I was wondering what is the advantage of server software. Sorry for this noob type of question, but having always used 'client" software, I must confess to not knowing if I am missing something or not. I just recently got the base 2010 Mini and did up the ram to 4 GB. In watching some of the discussion here, and in contemplating whether to get a refurb 27 in iMac, a Mac Book Pro, or wait for the Mac Pro, I seem to now have another option: and that is to get the Mini server. I would be doing audio recording and editing using a simple program called SparkME. The server mini has two hd's that can be raided, I have external 1TB drives for backup, so it seems a fair option. I even have a spare HDMI display, keyboard and trackball. I kinda like the idea because it is $900 less than the iMac or Mac Book solution, and maybe 1000's less than the Mac Pro solution. What do you folks think? Thanks.
