    Mac Mini for iTunes server?
    Right now I'm using an old Mini-ITX WinXP machine to run iTunes which is used in conjunction with ATV-2 and my other Windows machines for music. Basically a media server.

    Problem is the PC is unreliable and locks up, freezes etc.

    Was thinking of replacing this with a Mac Mini if they are more stable. If so would it matter which one I got - buying used. Certain specs to look for?

    Thanks.

    Always to good to get at least an Intel CPU version so you have OS upgrade options. Were it me, I'd try to find a good deal on one with a Core 2 Duo CPU so you can run contemporary software and OS's. It wouldn't hurt to select a model that accepts 4GB or 677Mhz RAM as well. Some of the older systems have a DVI port instead of HDMI, whic is a good thing for some folks. The DVI doesn't have many of the DMCA protections baked in so if you connect to a TV at some point, you may have less issues. Good luck!
