If I had a small pc with a few hard disks in it could I have a dedicated drive just to use for my macs time machine back ups? With the lack Mac mini updates I'm looking at a solution to run a machine for ip security cameras plus host my movies , music and pictures. I'd use iCloud for PC on it and windows iTunes. So in reality it's a server for a Mac and ATV. Opinions? I'd actually prefer a new mini release and in the mean time I'll use my current mini until it drops. Or do I try and build a hackintosh?
