The Mac mini's graphics chipset used a portion of main memory as VRAM. Though reported as a 256 MB graphics system, this was actually a minimum. Actual usage varied with graphics load, resulting in slightly less RAM available for system use.

Introduced in June 2010, the Mac mini Server (Mid 2010) came with an unlimited license for Max OS X Server Snow Leopard. It was housed in the same case size and shape as its contemporary Mac mini Mac mini (Mid 2010), but without an optical drive, which was removed to accommodate a second hard drive. It shipped in a single configuration, with a 2.66 GHz Dual-core processor, 4 GB of RAM, and two 500 GB hard drives, for $999.
