They removed the optical drive and gave it a second hard drive.

This is now VERY tempting. Like Sir Harry I have a G4 MDD tower that is still running but it takes a LONG time to open my iPhoto or iTunes library.

My G4 MDD was acting in a home server capacity. This new Mac Mini would stack nicely with my AirPort

Last month I bought an HP Home Media server because I could administer it from my Mac. I was led astray because the EX485 was at a good price, but now I’m kicking myself.
