Mac Mini vs. Intel NUC (Haswell)

I've been looking at purchasing a small computer that could be used as a small server and/or HTPC. Something that doesn't take up too much space (or power).

To that end I looked at the Apple Mac Mini, primarily because using Mac OS X Server would allow for the most versatility in which operating systems I could use and virtualize. This is purely due to Apple's restrictive licensing, that their operating systems can only be installed on Apple hardware.
