    Im not sure which one to ask for christmas. I found the mini 2.8 ghz with 160g on a wholesale site for 318 and the g-5 with intel dual core processors 17" for 443. I have no clue whether it's a legit site or not; The site is easywholesalepro

    Ask for cash equivalent to the new Mac Mini at Christmas. Wait until MacWorld. Buy the new one.

    Yes, it's currently over $500. The new one probably will be, too. Do not buy from that site. It doesn't even exist on resellerratings.com

    Now I know for certain it's a scam.

    When did they make a 2.8ghz mini? Apple only make the 2.0ghz model. Seems alittle fishy to me

    Oh ok that sounds right. How about ask for an apple gift card instead of asking for a machine. Then you can save up for the new Mini if they ever come out with it.

    Thanks for all of your input guys,
    I'm asking for money instead of a computer and I'll sell a few other things in order to save up for an Imac because I want the isight to make videos for youtube. I also think my mom can get a student discount.
