I'd agree...those things are so out of date, even at refurb prices they're a poor deal.

Hopefully this is a sign of an update soon, although it may not be any better than the last update and still leave it way behind the times.

A mini is a mini. It was out of date the day it was updated last august. Looks like the refurbs are sold out now!!!

They just removed the refurb mini from the store. That was quick.

I got a 1.66 a few weeks back for $450 and it came with a 120gb HD and 1GB of RAM but I only paid for 80GB and 512MB hehe.

Have to agree. I got the 1.66GHz refurb last August ($439) and it was a good deal back then. Now its too long in the tooth. Probably get updated with left over MacBook Santa Rosa parts when the MacBook goes Montevina in summer so not a huge upgrade, IMO.

Yes it was. I went on here and posted that it came with upgrades, and I guess according to some people here this is common. I think it was $429 and it came out to $450ish after tax.

Best Buy's web page sold out of their minis today & Fry's is now out of the 1.83's. Come on Apple...pull the trigger on the refresh! :D

The refurbs are back again if anyone is looking.

(Though I just bought a 1.83 and then that option disappeared on reload. All that is left is the 2.0 version)
