Mac mini with Snow Leopard Server (2010)

At A Glance

The Mac mini with Snow Leopard server was released in 2010 – unlike previous minis, this model was specifically designed to be a server, complete with Snow Leopard Server preinstalled. Two 500GB 7200-rpm hard drives replace the internal SuperDrive found on the regular mini. Read the original specifications of the Mac mini with Snow Leopard server at the Apple support site.
