    Price seems a little high to me considering the price of a new Intel model Mac mini. Just my two cents, however.

    I wouldn't say that it's a good deal since it's for a g4. That's about $500 US and you can get a new intel mac mini for $600. For $500 you could probably find a used intel mac mini without much trouble.

    You might even be able to find a refurbished unit with a warranty, too
    (Check Apple.com and MacSales.com)

    Try to talk the seller into selling it lower. Bring up the fact that it is an old generation mac mini and you can get a newer generation about the same price. You maybe be able to cut off ~$50.

    If you need to pay cash and face to face, I suggest you check up on your local craigslist. You can usually get great deals if you're patient and the deals are done locally.
