Default Mac Mini

Mac Mini
The technical characteristics of mac-mini are much improved, compared with a recent past, and now i think is become a good computer on which power even develop.

Unfortunately, in Europe the prices are far greater than on Usa (naturally not only for mac products):
Mac Mini price $599.00 (euro 386.369)
Mac Mini price Italy: euro 499.00

I have a question.
Who has a mac mini I could say as behaves summer with ambient temperatures (say 35 degrees) without air conditioners?

we used to run them at my old work and they seemed to run fine with our 40 degree server room ( the AC was broken for a few weeks )

I find that it is a positive news.

Another question, the hard disk with an average or high use, especially on summer, with temperature reaching?

I believe that the Mac Mini uses a notebook hard drive. If so, then the one in my MacBook Pro stays cool, and we've had over 100F temperatures in the past couple of days. So, the Mac Mini should overall operate much cooler than my MBP.

Yes, it is very bad. Apple prices are too high here for the hardware... Always wanted a Mac mini, since the first became available. But it is far more cheap to build a PC with similar characteristics.

Really tired here that companies behave as € = $ ...

I've got 2 mac mini's in my data center doing outbound mail - the ambient inlet temp is in the 71-74 degree F range and snmp reports the outlet temp is only about 90 degrees - an air temperature change of 20 degrees F seems to be the average so, with high end tolerances above 110 you could get away with 90+ degree F inlet. Ours have regular notebook harddrives and don't get too hot. Again, I'm just using them to send out mail, not a whole lot of reading going on, but S.M.A.R.T. is reporting that the drive temperature averages 86 degrees F.
