Do you guys think an 5G 60GB mint ipod is a good trade for a mac mini?

    someone on craigslist is offering a G4 mini for my ipod. I just changed my ipod's faceplate so it is literally new front panel (it has a white panel with black click wheel and white bottom) Do you guys think this is a good trade? I was thinking about getting a mac to hook up to my tv, but I'm not sure.

    here are the specs, how much do you think I can get for it?

    o yes good deal IMO

    for prices of 5G - check ebay and also the refurb section of apple.com

    just be careful with deal like this that almost seem too good to be true!

    Check that he is a reputable trader, and I would suggested meeting in a public place to do the exchange...

    Either that or try and do it via paypal and not some moneygram scam scheme!

    ok. now the person decided to be the man and back out on the deal saying he doesn't want a 5G even though his ad clearly says 60GB ipod, whatever. So now my question is, do you guys think with these specs that I should just buy it and then sell it elsewhere (namely here)? thanks for your help.

    also, on a slightly different note, do you think that I would be better off paying 10 bucks on ebay and get a new front panel for that ipod or just leave it with all of the dents?

    how much was the mini?? id probably be inclined not to buy a G4, purely because the intel mini's arent that much more, if anything extra.
    and yup $10 buck is nothing..just get it!
