The new Mac mini with Snow Leopard Server must be taking tips from one of those VW Beetles with all the clowns in the back. That’s the only way to explain how Apple crammed all that hardware and performance into such a small form factor. A tiny little aluminum box like its predecessors, the mini Server comes without monitor, keyboard, or even mouse. While it can be administered remotely, it’s a good idea to connect it to a monitor and keyboard for initial setup. In keeping with its role as a server, the optical drive is sacrificed to make room for a second 500GB drive for a total of 1TB storage. Also notable by its absence is the external power brick. That’s now tucked inside the mini too.
