What's a 1.42GHz mini worth?

Any idea? I think it has a gig o' RAM...

Nice little unit, but really, can it be worth more than a couple hundred? It belongs to a client, who has just bought a refurb black MacBook, so he's decided he doesn't need the confusion of two machines.

I understand that you can't easily search completed auctions at eBay anymore, so thought I'd give it a try here... Thanks!

Thanks all! I did a search at eBay just now, and the completed auctions option is still there... I thought I read here in the last couple months that it had been removed or crippled somehow. Sorry, I should have checked for myself!

Anyhoo, thanks for the input. Looks like it could be worth upwards of $300 to the right person!

The time you can go back is much shorter...
Only a matter of a couple weeks, instead of months (as it used to be).

It would be worth a nice tax-deductible reciept from a public school to me.

Just sayin'... if you don't.. or if the seller needs a "tax break" more than cash...

Good question, if you ask me...

Maybe the appeal of the mini is its small foot print? I would've guessed that your MDDs would be worth at least $500 though... Damn nice machines!

maybe because too many people already know about your iMacs...?



Sometimes it is what it is...
and then there's times when it's really better.
