Probably the Mini.... You wouldn't buy a 17" LCD screen for a web server... so why would you pay the extra to get it with the iMac. Plus the Mini will take up less space. The only concern might be the slower hard disk. But if you are just using it locally for Apache stuff I don't think that will be too much of an issue. Neither of them would really be expandable so that isn't going to have an effect on which you choose.

Truth be told I would probably look for an older used G4 Powermac. You would probably get a lower Mhz for the same cost. But you could put more RAM and bigger/faster hard drives in there if you needed to down the road.
