I am looking at setting up a home server on the current-gen Mini. The refurb store has a 2.3GHz i7 with 4GB RAM and 1TB drive for $679, to which I would add another HDD or SSD and 16GB RAM. I would like to run a Win 8 VM with Office 2013 on the Mini. (This VM is just for Office docs.) Unless I purchase another router for my upstairs office (where I would prefer to hook up the Mini), I would have to connect the Mini wirelessly to my (ASUS RT-N66U) router which is currently on the main floor in the living room near the cable box. So my question is whether a wireless connection would make accessing a VM on the Mini too slow to use for creating Office documents? I (would) use VMWare Fusion and have toyed with the idea of using the Mini as an ESXi server, but this latter function is new to me and I am still learning about it, and I would still want to use it as an OS X server. Thanks for your help.
