Big Server in a Tiny Package

What is Mac mini with Snow Leopard Server?

Exactly what you'd expect -- a Mac mini specifically designed to be a server with Mac OS X Snow Leopard Server preinstalled. Instead of a SuperDrive, there are two 500GB hard drives that give you all the power and storage you need to help your group work more efficiently than ever

What Can It Do for You?

Mac mini with Snow Leopard Server is designed to help you communicate, collaborate, and share information. It's perfect for any small business or group -- retail shops, doctor and law offices, classrooms, design studios -- you name it. Now you can have your own server that supports email on Mac computers, PCs, and iPhone. Sync and share calendars and contact information. Access and swap files securely, and at lightning speed, between Mac computers and PCs. Easily create full-featured wikis and high-quality podcasts. And automatically back up all your important data

Add as Many People as You Want

Mac mini with Snow Leopard Server lets you add an unlimited number of Mac and PC users without per-user licensing fees. So you can grow your business without growing your costs. And you get amazing hardware and software that are ready to go, right out of the box, for less than the cost of most server software alone

Ease of Use

Server Assistant

The Mac is famously easy to use, and so is Mac mini with Snow Leopard Server. That makes it perfect for people who've never run a server before or for overtaxed IT departments. Server Assistant will walk you through the setup process step by step. And if you want help at any stage, just click the "?" icon for more information

Management

Tools like Server Preferences let you quickly set up all your key services and manage users and groups. A Server Status Dashboard widget makes it easy to keep an eye on the status of services such as email, file sharing, web hosting, and more

Integration and Compatibility

Advanced network hardware and software make it incredibly simple to integrate Mac mini with Snow Leopard Server into any Mac or PC environment. It is compatible with a wide range of displays, keyboards, mice, and other peripherals, so you can put it to work with the equipment you already have

Performance

Small, But Powerful

The new Mac mini with Snow Leopard Server features a 2.53GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 4GB of memory. It also has two 500GB hard drives built in, so you have plenty of room to host wikis and websites, back up the data you need, and store just about anything

SuperDrive

If you ever want to burn discs or install additional software, consider the external USB-based MacBook Air SuperDrive. It takes up very little space and easily connects to Mac mini with a single USB cable -- there's no separate power adapter

Space Efficient; Energy Efficient

Mac mini with Snow Leopard Server uses less than 16 watts of power when idle. That's 4.5 times less than a similarly equipped tower server. It's also made from highly recyclable aluminum, so it has a big impact on the way your office works and a tiny impact on the planet

AirPort Extreme & Bluetooth

The integrated AirPort Extreme 802.11n Wi-Fi will let you get online without wires. You'll be able to connect to networks with ease, even those that operate on the less-common 5GHz radio band. The system also features a Bluetooth 2.1+EDR module, allowing it to communicate with compatible wireless peripherals such as keyboards, mice, cell phones, and headsets

Bring Your Own Accessories

Display, Keyboard, Mouse

The Mac mini ships sans display, keyboard, and mouse. This allows you to choose your own peripherals, or use items that you already own

Dual Display Support

The computer features two display outputs -- one Mini DisplayPort and one Mini-DVI -- allowing you to use the system in a dual monitor configuration

The Mac Experience

Environmentally Friendly Design

Apple understands that the Earth is our most precious resource. They've worked to create a computer that is energy efficient, free of many toxins, and highly recyclable. Because Apple designs both hardware and software, the Mac mini is able to use a highly efficient power supply that reduces wasted power. The computer is free of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and brominated flame retardants (BFRs). When the computer reaches the end of its long life, you can rest assured that it can be recycled. It is constructed from materials, including aluminum and glass, that are highly desirable to recyclers. The Mac mini has been awarded EPEAT Gold status for responsible manufacture, energy efficiency, and recyclability

Tech Support

Have a problem with your Mac? Get support and advice at the Genius Bar, located at every Apple Retail Store. Apple also provides online tutorials, troubleshooting forums, and 90 days of phone support for users who aren't able to make it to an Apple store

Optional AppleCare

Apple provides 90 days of free phone support and a 1-year limited hardware warranty on the computer. You can opt to add an AppleCare Protection Plan, at additional cost, which covers support and repairs for 3 years from the date of purchase. AppleCare can be purchased at any time within the first year of ownership of the computer
