I pulled the trigger.
No, no... I didn't shot my mac mini, nor did I buy a 2012 mac mini....
I saw a listing for a 2010 Mac mini on craigslist for 500 OBO. I called and received voice mail. I figured it was gone already. Not thinking I'd get a chance at it, I posted a Want to buy add in Market Place for a Silver Nano (Really want one.) and had one person offer.
Well, a few minutes later, my phone rang and it was the person (guy) with the mac mini for sale. I asked what would ne the least he'd take for it and that I had cash money in hand. He stated he was asking 500 but, he'd entertain 450. I hesitated for a minute (actually looking up the cost of them and the new 2012 mac mini base (again and again)) and he said that he'd take 400. I told him deal.
He wanted to meet at the Apple Store so they could transfer his pics off the mac mini onto his MBP. I told him that I was an ACA and that we could meet at his location or the local coffee store and I could do it for him. He said that'd be great.
Well, an hour or so later, my wife called and said she was taking our 2yo to the doctor as he wasn't feeling well and complaining of his throat hurting. Strep, our 5yo had it Sunday... So she took him to the dr, confirmed strep and gave him a penicillin shot. MAJOR allergic reaction. So off to the children's hospital.
I call the guy and tell him that I DO want to buy the mac mini and then told him what was going on. He said that he was going out of town today and wouldn't be bak until next week. DRATS! He said he'd still have it and we could meet up whenever he gets back.
So, I haven't officially bough it it yet but, I am going to get a 2010 Mac Mini (4G ram upgraded) for 400. Then I'll transfer all of his files for him for free of course.
Thanks for reading, if you made it this far. I had to get that out.
