Apple Mac Mini 2.53GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Computer With Snow Leopard Server - MC408LLA

There’s a whole server in there.

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.

  • File Sharing: Create shared folders for exchanging files and backup.
  • Instant Messaging: Exchange instant messages and conduct video conferences.
  • Address Book: Synchronize and share contacts.
  • Mail: Send and receive email on the Internet.
  • Calendar: Schedule events and share calendars.
  • Internet: Host a website. Create and share wikis and blogs.

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.

Easy to set up. Easy to run.

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.

Tools like Server Preferences let you quickly set up all your key services and manage users and groups. And 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. And it’s 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.

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.

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.
