    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!


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


    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.

    In that one place
    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.
