    It is the 2.3 i7, has 16GB Ram (crucial) and an OCZ Vector SSD 512GB. I have original box.

    I bought the retina iMac. Seems good for what I need. What a screen!

    You should be able to get a nice price for it!

    Yeah, that would be good. It would come in handy.

    I know there is a firmware upgrade to the Vector. It has performed flawlessly for me, but I would do that for new buyer. OCZ does recommend the update.

    I may list it soon.

    You could also put it up in this site's Marketplace ;)

    Pretty sure you'll have no problem selling, heck, depending on the CPU you may already have a buyer ;):cool:

    Wow. You're selling a 2012 quad i7 Mini? Pretty much the hottest thing running OSX right now.

    Maybe wait a month for the supply of 2012s to sell out?

    Congrats, the retina imac screen is so nice!

    I am a huge mini fan and almost got a tricked out 2014 to go with my Dell 24 inch monitor. At the very last minute I cancelled my order and went with the riMac. The siren song of a Retina screen called to me.

    It is so funny that the 2012 mini is so in demand. We waited SO LONG for the "update" :)

    I am havinf big issues adapting to the large screen. If not for the retina aspect, I NEVER would have gotten a 27 inch screen to work on.

    Still a 1% chance I will return the riMac. But with such a screen, that is very hard to do.

    Normally I get used to things very quickly. Bi focal glasses? About 2 days and I was good to go. 24 inch 16:10 to 27 inch 16:9 is 10 days in and still not "used" to it.

    I'd say keep it out of E-bay and sell it here instead. Your gonna get the adequate price for it and it feels like people here would appreciate it.

    There is, but you need to have 250 post and been a member for 6 months if I'm not mistaken.

    That's a shame. Been reading MacRumors for ages but just signed up in order to ask this question to you. Anyway, I guess members will know how to find me by means of a PM.

    Thanks.
