    I need the cheapest Intel Mac I can find. I want to have an XBMC server running at all times so I can have a media center in my room. I don't care what the processer speed is, as long as it works I'm fine. I don't think eBay is a good place, a lot of stuff is overpriced like Mac Mini G4s for $500. I need the cheapest place I can buy one, new, used, or refurbished.

    If you don't want to deal with eBay, I think you should try your local craigslist page. You might be able to find a cheap intel Mac mini. Also, you might want to look at an Apple tv from the refurb store instead of running xmbc.

    Can I stream my iTunes Music and Videos from another Mac? Because if I can, I might get the :apple:TV because 40GB is definitely not enough for all my movies.

    Yes, you can stream anything from iTunes to the ATV. Look at the ATV threads if that's they way you want to go. If you were looking to get an intel mac as a media server that has been addressed many times too.
