i have a mini at work. i also have one at home. i'm about to start working from home full time so now i'll have an 'extra' mini.

is there any way that i can connect the two of them to have a faster computer. or is there really no point in that?

you could probably take the ram out of one of them to make one faster but that way only one will run

Afraid not. You can network them to share files, or to double the amount of disk space, but there's no way to suddenly magic up double the computing power.

Well, it is not impossible to do that. Xgrid is developed by Apple just for this. Read more.
Easy configuration can be found here.
