So I needed something now and couldn't bring myself to buy the super outdated MacPro, so I jumped on a refurbished 2.53GHz '09 Mini w/ 4GB RAM, and the 320GB HDD. At the same time I ordered a seagate momentus XT from NewEgg. The Mini was $589 and the hybrid HDD was $142 shipped. So for ~$731 I'll have a pretty smokin' mini that SHOULD run circles around my old G5. My plan when the new MP comes out is to pull the momentus XT, re-install the 320GB it came w/, sell the mini, and install the hybrid in the new MP! That ought to make the new fast MP even faster! Oh, and I'll be able to recoup a little $$ from selling my G5 locally. The best part is I don't need the HDMI, or the better graphics of the new mini (Which I think looks awesome!), so the refurb is perfect! Another funny thing is back in the beginning of '05 when the first mini came out, I bought it as my first mac and loved it. So I sold it and spent $2200+ on the G5, now here I am buying a semi-new mini that will out pace the G5!!
