    I dunno... those monitors are getting on a bit. I'd never buy a second-hand monitor without seeing it working first.

    Besides, no pictures of the actual item for sale? No images of it working?
    Doesn't fill the heart with confidence.

    This monitor connects to your Mac G4 via Apple Display Connector (ADC)

    I don't think the mini have ADC input.

    The mac mini has a DVI out, you will need a $100+ adapter to make ADC work.

    If you're strapped for cash you're best off avoiding Apple monitors/lcds. You can do a lot better with another brand of lcd for the same money. For the most part a good lcd will perform just as well, if not better than apple's own screens.

    hate to break it to you, only the new aluminun apple LCDs will work with the mac mini. i reccomend looking for a dell or some other display with DVI inputs, you could also connect with VGA but DVI is much better.
    btw the crts will work too, but since they were manufactured so long ago it's difficult to find one in good condition
