Like everyone else I really am ready for the new mini to at least get an official information release, price/spec/date, but like some others I also like to check the refurb page on apple.com.

But somethings wrong with this "refurb" mini....
1.66GHz Intel Core Duo
512MB memory
80GB hd
Original price $799
"Your" price $649

Ummm..... are we paying more because it got to revisit Apple, or just because we are spending too much time looking at the Apple page.

I tried posting a pic but dont have it hosted/posted online so I dont have a URL to post it with :confused:

that does seem a bit over priced for a refurb model. i think we will start seeing cheaper and better priced used models once the whole line gets updated

Well I was referencing the current pricing of the same spec mini at $599, not $799.
This refurb mini is actually $50 more expensive than a regular one.


Unless my brain is fried and I am missing something....:D

Apple discounts most hardware as a set % off the original price, regardless of the current price. That's why occasionally you get anamolies like that.

The low-end mini just sucks. Get the high-end.
