Then why not just take a full TM backup of the iMac, restore it onto the Mini then just use the Mini all the time? Only falling back to the iMac if the Mini doesn't perform. . . which will answer your question about whether it's up to the job.

If you have to use both the 'piecemeal' approach is still the best way on a day-to-day basis, only resorting to the full TM backup/restore once you get rid of one of the machines

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup
