Refurb mini silent upgrades?
Posted by: endymion

I'm wondering if anyone's had luck getting refurb Mac minis with the silent upgrade specs (1.33 or 1.5 Ghz, 64 MB VRAM, built-in Bluetooth/Airport Extreme). I know with new product you can check via the serial number to determine build date and hench likelihood of having silent upgrade; but I'm wondering if those have trickled down yet...

I've been waiting a while, want to get a mini with the wireless kit and with the refurb price at $380 and LA Computer Company selling the wireless kit for $70, it's been hard to resist; other than knowing if I wait just a little bit longer I might get 1.33Ghz and more VRAM.

"if I wait just a little bit longer I might get 1.33Ghz and more VRAM."

Or, if you believe some of the rumor sights, you might get an all new Intel based mini.

Seriously though, I am curious about this too. Anyone get a mini from Amazon with silent upgrades?

I ordered and received a mini for my ex about two weeks ago , . . no silent upgrades. Top of the line 1.42 with SuperDrive but no upgrades . . . bummer.

We got a couple mini refurbs to use for MW Expo next month.... no silent upgrades + was surprised that while they had Tiger DVDs included, had to install Tiger since only Panther was factory installed!
