Thanks for the reply. I had read (don't remember where) from what I considered a reliable source that the quad core i7 mini server, especially with 8 GB RAM, could handle the user/file server scenario without an issue - especially in my small office situation. Why would this be a problem considering my light usage? FYI, we have been using an old noisy G4 Xserve, but I wanted to migrate to something that will support newer server software. THis was an economical way to upgrade the imac my user was on and upgrade my server simultaneously. The mini also allows me to use a color accurate monitor that is better than an imac.

Forgot to mention - we have comcast pro cable modem service. Download speeds are 20M and upload are 5M - tested.
