    Mac Mini Questions
    Just bought my first Mac and I love it!

    I do have a few quick questions:

    1. With the Mini, are there any issues with plugging a USB hub into the unit and then an external drive and 4-5 other devices into the hub? Just curious - don't want to overpower the Mini

    2. Where is a good site to read about running BSD/Linux/X11 apps in OSX?

    Thanks - Appreciate your help in advance.

    I can only answer your first question...
    I would suggest to buy a self-powered hub. They aren't expensive, and you don't need to worry about draining too much power from the mini. As the mini's powersupply isn't extremely powerfull.
