Just a few weeks ago we purchased a mac mini from Craigslist for myself. We'd decided to purchase an iMac for my wife's office. I have dibs on a local one from Craigslist for $750. I've already looked at it and is in mint condition. I thought it seemed like a pretty good price, but understand it's not the newest model. She is only using it my basic word processing, email, browsing, weekend warrior for pics and family videos.

An i3 21.5 is 1019 + tax. I appreciate your time and input.
