    Hi Everyone,

    I am looking for the cheapest Mac capable of outputting to a flat screen TV through HDMI (I understand that I may need an adapter). Whilst I have posted this into the Desktop forum (on the assumption that a Desktop will be cheaper than an equivalent laptop), I am also willing to purchase a laptop. The Mac will need to run OSx Lion (or later), required to connect with a Broadcaster Wi-Fi Webcam. Finally, and of particular importance, I am very open to buying second hand in order to keep the price down.

    Any suggestions are welcome.

    Kind Regards,

    Probably a 2007 Mac Mini. They can be had for about $200-$400 depending on condition. In that price range, you could also get an 2006 Core2Duo iMac for about as much, but the shipping would be more.

    Get any mac-mini that was released after 2008. You should be able to get one for under $350
