Finally, got the money together to buy a second Mac mini. After buying it from the local Apple dealer (the 1.42 GHz model with AE/BT and combo drive) I got home and unpacked it as soon as possible to find out if it was one of the newer, secretly upgraded, models. When finished booting and going to all the first setup questions I finally was able to run the system profiler.

Happy, happy, happy…..

Yes it is one of the newer 1.5 GHz models with faster harddrive and more video memory. Lucky me, the faster hardrive and processor will make the server just a fraction faster for no extra money.

Next up, getting everything installed to get it running as a server and recheck my compilation notes.
