A quality, top-shelf computer for a very reasonable price.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I'm a little biased, because I really like Apple's operating system & software/hardware. On one hand it's easy to use & doesn't require a lot of in depth thinking to accomplish a task. However, at times it seems to take a while to find where something is filed, especially if you are accustomed to Window's way of thinking. That being said, once you become comfortable navigating around Apple's way of seeing the computer experience---it's a whole new world.
The Mac Mini Server is fast; quick load time & very minimal wait when executing commands. The processor doesn't seem to become bogged down with multitasking & the ability to install 16GB of RAM definitly reduces recall time. It is equipped with (2) 500GB hard drives (7500 RPM), allowing for plenty of storage & quick access to all that data. The Mini is compact & in my opinion, stylishly designed.
The only "negative" thing to be said is that the Mac Mini doesn't come with a keyboard, mouse, or display. And for hard core gamers or video editing gurus, there is no dedicated graphics card. I feel in not offering these options standard, this allows Apple to offer a very high quality computer for an affordable price. And if you have a little more money to spend & really want the bells & whistles, there is always the iMac.
But for individuals not looking to spend a grand plus on a great computer, then consider the Mac Mini. Whether the server model or base model is right for you, it seems to me--is only a matter of preference.

Buy Mac Mini Server 2011. It represents better performance than 2012 model.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I purchased this machine for professional post production facility.
This specific computer is now serving our editing suite (sound) and running Pro Tools HD10.
It outputs sound via built in Toslink digital I/O. We have a main monitor 24 inch connected to thunderbolt port and view the picture on a large LCD TV from HDMI port.
We increased the RAM to 16 GB and now it performs really fast and able to deal with pretty large track count projects.
Great value for money! And it has two 7200 rpm hard drives! Better than later 2012 mac mini (5400rpm).

Versatile Mac Mini Server

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

This isn't my main computer for my video business. It is my main computer for the business end of things. I’m using this computer to write this using Windows XP and Microsoft Word. I was able to get it to run Lion, Snow Leopard and Windows XP. Very nice and versatile machine, but my word of caution is that getting XP to work on it is a little involved and loading Snow Leopard was very difficult, uncharted turf and required two Intel Macs. I can run my older business programs and internet on XP. I can run newer Mac programs (Blu-ray high definition encoding) on Lion, and older Mac programs (FCP, etc.) on Snow Leopard. This has saved me hundreds, perhaps a few thousands of dollars at a time when business is tough. I can also use the Mini as a second Mac processor. The four USB ports are quite handy. I paid a handsome price, but still saved a few hundred dollars and have an Intel I7 machine.

tiny package with tons of power

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

wonderful machine! even though it's not a laptop, it's still very portable that I bring those overseas all the time. the quad-core Lion server even outperform the 8-core mac pro I bought in 2008. I've upgraded my machine to 16GB of main memory and hooked up Lacie's thunderbolt external hard drives. Now it's a dream machine in a tiny package.
