    Just picked up the 2010 base model for $469 (was $599 yesterday). The upgraded processor model is $549 ($719 yesterday) and the server is $749 (formerly $849 I believe).

    Good deal for anyone who doesn't need a i5/i7 processor or someone who wants to get a model with an optical drive.

    I just picked up the 2.4 for 501 after tax but discover card gives 5 percent off so I paid 475.

    This will give me choice I have the 2.66 2009 2x esata hack with about 20 months of apple care on it. (i can set it back to stock in 30 minutes) I have the 2010 2.4 refurb coming in. I need to figure what 2011 to buy. I will end up keeping 2 of the three.

    Wow I would have totally hit that @ $469. Looks like the refurbs are all but gone now, only 2 SL Server models available @ $749.

    the 2009 and 2010 models are both there, at the same price, $750. WTF, Apple?

    Where can I find the previous generation of Mac Mini (new) for a decent price? A friend of mine wants one, but he needs the optical drive. Thanks.

    Amazon, but if he wants a new one he isn't going to get it for cheaper than the 2011 baseline model.

    If he has to have it new then he'd be better off getting a 2011 model and an external optical drive.

    Here is the link if you want to keep checking for when it becomes available again.

    It has been in and out of stock several times over the past week.

    Any idea of when these puppies will be back in stock? Really want to get one for my father, the poor guy's been using my ancient iBook G4 for the past year as his only computer.

    Man these things are flying off the Apple Refurb shelf, you blink and they are gone, I was about to buy a Refurb 13" MBP with the 2.4 and nVidia 320 for my wife and poof it was gone after the page refresh.

    With the price of the new Refurb 2010 Mini's I would like to get 2 and replace my ATV's. I setup alerts for Refurbs but hopefully they get some more in stock soon.
