2. I'm an Ubuntu tester. The whole point of the Mac mini (or other old hardware), is to test on. i don't want to re-install on the main machine(which will run VMs)
you don't have to re install your current os all you have to do is get another Storage drive such as a ssd or hdd. hell you can even just get a bootable thumb drive. anything to make it so you dont need three mobos in your case. and without getting a case labs (which are stupidly expensive) that air 540 is your best bet. trust me finding a case that fits 2 mobos while keeping a good temp is hard. and about your parents hating computers im actually in that same boat. every time i get a shipment from newegg and my dad finds out he yells at me and calls me a fag and a loser.... it sucks but what are you gonna do. and the fact that your only 14 with assuming no income i think you may have bitten off more then you can chew on this one.... but i hope im wrong on this one. i love it when people do stuff like this. when they push the boundary. so please prove me wrong.
and always, happy modding
