My company is looking to upgrade my Mac and is considering the Mac Mini with Lion Server vs the Mac Pro. Lately we've been doing alot of After Effects and Premiere work (1080p) and when rendering (currently on a MacBook Pro) I'm unable to work on anything else and render times are between 2-3 hours for a 3-4 minute piece (with effects). They are looking to save money so my question is would I be able to the Mac Mini be a viable option? The specs are below.
2.0GHz : Dual 500GB
2.0GHz quad-core Intel Core i7
Dual 500GB 7200-rpm hard drives1
Intel HD Graphics 3000
OS X Lion Server
