    Go for it!
    A pretty good deal there.
  3. macrumors 68000


    Definitely a good price; you can throw in another couple gigs of RAM for pretty darned cheap, throw Leopard retail on it, and you'll have a solid machine. :)

    The $429 refurbished Mac mini that was on the Apple Store would eat it for breakfast.
  5. macrumors 65816


    Then the G5 would swallow it whole and still have room for 3 PCI-E cards, two full size hard drives, 14GB more ram and then rape the mini's "graphics card" when its done.

    ditto the intel mac mini. unless you need > 4GB of memory, or RAID disk setup, the newer Mac Minis will be faster. (Core2Duo Minis). Sold my 2.3Ghz G5, slower and stuck on leopard.
