    I was looking on CL in the area I'm moving to to see if there's any good deals and I found a 2007 MP listed for $50.

    All it says is it needs hard drives. Is this something I should definitely jump on??

    I've never really looked into MPs before but that seems like it's too good to pass up.

    If there's something wrong with it, you could sell the good parts for a multiple of that. The case alone is worth it.

    Depends on it's intended use. A case for a hack? If anything other than that:
    1. Take a HD with any OS from 10.4-10.7 on it
    2. Have various apps on it
    3. Plug it in bay #1 and if possible drives in #2-4.
    4. Take items to check USB and FW ports
    5. Run apps and any utility apps you have. Use Techtool Pro and have it run the gambit!
    6. Look at his/her face while their 2,1 is being analyzed! :p

    So the max OS is 10.7? Eh. I'm guessing for the most part my mini has more power, at least for what my needs are.

    Exactly so! I'll be dropping in another 2 SSD's for RAID on my El Cap and Windows 10 installs.

    heck yeah the 5365 chips are worth more then that when I bought my 2006 2 years ago it was 200 dollars with no hard drive. I would buy it if it comes on!
