    No way would I pay that. Try closer to £200.

    Stay away from mini's with intel integrated graphics.:eek:

    Especially when the new one is only about £180 more.
    --new one: better processor, bigger hd, 2x-4x more shared graphics ram, faster system bus.

    Bite the bullet and get the new, or save up for it.
