    somewhere else
    Personally, I wouldn't even consider trying to figure out something like this when Apple is on the cusp of making some sort of product announcement on Wednesday the 12th.

    This question should be far easier to address in five days.

    Well that $350 mac mini sold quick

    I see another on Craigslist for $475 , the 2011 base model
    2 months old & 16gb of ram

    Would it be a good deal to trade my iPad 3 16gb wifi for the mini?
