Hi, yesterday apple has officially ended support for Powerpc. It made my decision even harder now. I was going to get a used xserve G5 for 399 off ebay, and put more hard drive to make a home file server and website hosting. Im currently having leopard server on my mac pro, but im thinking of having a delicated server to run 24/7 just to serve all the macs in my household. My Mac pro is doing great now, but sometimes i load up bootcamp to play some game then nobody is able to naccess files anymore. My plan is use the xserve as an uplink connect direct to the internet and then share its internet connection to a gigabit switch and draft n router. It will host several of my web services and most importantly, store all of my movies, music and documents so they can be accessible throughout the house. My alternative solution is to get a mac mini (i want this for snow leopard support) but the down side is that. It has only 1 ethernet port (no big deal) I cant use my existing hard drives without buying external enclosures Limit amount of ram Ability to run 24/7 And the xserve look a lot better next to my macpro too..! So, what do you guys think? I just spent more then 2K on my new macbook pro, and i really dont want to spend another 2K for a Xeon Xserve. No definitely not. Im out of budget now.
