    Well if you can't wait macmall has new 2010 macminis on sale 599 new most states no tax. they are selling them on ebay. for 599!



    http://cgi.ebay.com/Apple-Mac-Mini-...5267&_trksid=p1468660.m2000036#ht_1617wt_1141

    and newegg has this on a deal bust 4 pm to midnight for 65 bucks

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...m_re=g_skill_ddr3_1066-_-20-231-294-_-Product



    so you can get a new 2010 2.4GH/z 8gb ram mac mini for 665



    actually less because ebay has rebates maybe 635 or wait about 2 to 6 weeks for the refresh. this is a real sign that the refresh is coming BTW they have sold over 500 machines in under 3 days.

    Been tempted to pick one of these Mini's up, but I just know a new
    model is about to come out. Maybe when the new iMac's are expected to refresh in May?
    The Apple refurb store has been selling quite a few lately too.

    Hope for the config in the new base MBP.

    I have been looking at this deal. Why are they going through eBay and not there store. What is the advantage for them?

    And more importantly is there a disadvantage for me?

    $599 is still way overpriced for a low end C2D and 2GB of RAM. I don't care who makes it.

    They're probably doing it through ebay because more people are likely to notice it.

    Philip, I hope you're right. It's about time the Mini got a major CPU boost.

    I bought this for my kids. My C2D iMac is plenty fast for me so I figured an 8 year old doesn't need a faster computer than her dad :p

    Good choice. C2D is probably overkill for that.

    The advantage for them is they are selling them like mad.

    I would suspect that they are getting minis directly from Apple to do the massive dump. They have a relationship with apple and why would't Apple use them to dump the 2010 mini. JMO no facts. If you are a buyer from them online and buy this there should be no disadvantage. In fact ebay has a discount program called

    e bucks if you have it 2 percent off

    e bates anyone can join 2 percent off


    an ebay credit card 2 percent off

    so a new 600 dollar machine will be under 570 with no tax in many but not all states.

    eBay is subsidizing the sale.
