I've had a variety of Amahi boxes over the past couple of years. Here is my current box;


I needed lots of room but not much horsepower. This fit the bill perfectly. It is an Acer Revo Home Server. Originally had WHS on it but I never even tried that OS. The little server is running on an Atom D510 with 2GBs of RAM, but it has 4 drive bays and had room for a simple PCIe eSata card. I purchased a 4 drive bay eSata box and now have 8 bays of storage. The whole thing was under $300.00. Which for me was such a bargin. I've been running it for two months and no complaints. Handles AmahiTunes, miniDNLA, CrashPlan, SAMBA, and various other apps with no problem. With Greyhole I have lots of redundancy across all HDs and feel safer about my network than I have in a long time. Thanks Amahi guys. Great work!

Is that mini and Intel mac or a PPC. If PPC do you have good instructions on how to get it to work.

Only partially off topic, but I got some of the amahi stickers and was asked to post pic's.

They are on my development system (that also runs amahi in VMs).
The stickers made a nice makeover.

As you see they cover up the old somewhat ugly sticker quite well :-)
