I've got a few USB HD's and I'd like to use an HP Mini 1116NR as a low power consumption home entertainment server. This would be my first non M$ OS at home. Can you give me some pointers/suggestions?
I'm dreaming up all the fun projects I could do with building a mini PC to run Linux with. Buy a barebones system from Newegg for $120, build the rest and have a little powerbox....
What would you do with a project like this? Embedded entertainment system? Little home server? guest PC?
I am looking for hardware to make a small, silent, power saving mini-server for use at home. My specifications are:
Fanless / Small fan
Able to run Windows server OS
Has 2GB of RAM, ideally 4GB
I'm following the single board computers available out there, but most of them have a memory limit (1-2GB). 2GB will do it for now, but might not be future proof.
