[Trailer for Extra Members Show] This week, I take a look at a new edition to the Mac family - The new Mac mini Server with Snow Leopard Server.
Apple surprised everyone with the recent introduction of a refreshed Mac mini, optimised for duties as a full blown server[. With an increase to 500GB disk capacity, the addition of a second 500GB drive and the removal of the superdrive, the Mac mini turns out to be a surprisingly fully featured server platform, intended for small businesses or workgroups. Along with the hardware changes, Apple also now supplies a full copy of the latest Snow Leopard Server with unlimited client licences! All for just $999 or £799 - amazing value!
But is the Mac mini Server for you? What advantages does Snow Leopard Server bring over the desktop version of Snow Leopard.
Will in this overview show I reveal all! As well as some background information, I run through a fairly standard installation and explore some of the server tools and features of Snow Leopard Server.

Comparative Server Supporting Up To 100 Users
Snow Leopard Server For Home Use?
Installing Server Admin Tools On An Administrative Computer
