    I've got a G4 mini I'd like to do something with. I don't want it in my family room because it has a somewhat noticeable whine when running, but I'm reluctant to get rid of it since it still works great. I replaced it back in 2011 (with another mini) as my regular family computer.
    What are your suggestions?:confused:

    Disk server for backups, iTunes, and other files. Put it in a room or closet where you won't mind the whine.
