    With the new mac minis I was hoping to pick up a used one. I found a 1.25ghz, 1gb ram, unknown hard drive, with aluminum BT keyboard and BT mighty mouse on craigslist. They want $300. Seemed like a decent enough deal, but wasn't sure.

    What do you all think? Is it not worth getting a 1.25ghz? I would want to maybe use this as a media PC, would it be powerful enough?

    Great deal with a keyboard and mouse, but it's a G4 - not powerful enough as a Media PC...

    That's the BOTTOM of the bottom of the line Mac Mini, like 4 years old, they only paid $499. I'd try and find an Intel, like 1.83Ghz, plus that has Front Row and Remote IR/

    You can get a G5 Powermac for just a tiny bit more and a much better machine than that.
