    Fantastic!

    3 though... greedy :)

    What were his reasons for not wanting it anymore? Was he a switcher?
    I'd be interested in hearing the reasons...

    What are you going to do with it?

    No longer wants it?

    ...confused. Congrats on snapping up a deal! You should mod it into something awesome. Like a Mac Mini Commodore 64...

    But yeah, I plan on spending 300 on a mini 1.25 and soldering my way to 1.42... ;)

    he bought it for vid editing with a iffy copy of final cut pro , and all was going well untill he had problems with sound on a mpeg 2 file ? he tried the same thing on his PC and it worked no problem so out with the mac back to the PC

    switcher for -2 weeks

    mind you he did say that he loved the way the mac works - i can see him getting another mac at a later stage thou

    didn't see the" £" there... thought you got it for $300, which would have been an even better deal. ;)

    once i find a new job, i hope to have an envious decision between G5 iMac and 20" LCD + mini. :p
