    1.25GHz 1GB RAM 40GB HDD and 1 year of Apple Care remaining.

    Found local for $265. Would this make a good internet station? Is it worth what he's asking? I know it's pretty much the oldest mini available...

    Thanks for opinions.

    Maxed out RAM and dirt cheap. It'd be great for an internet machine.

    Thats a good price. I researched a MiniG4 for about a month looking for a home media computer. I eventually bought a 1.42 gHz 1gb/80gb BT/AP for $400 and I thought that that was a bit too much. If this machine has BT/AP on it then totally go for it.

    Thanks! Any other last minute opinions on this versus a $429 refurb core duo mini as far as value?

    Everything is moving to Intel.

    I would suggest buying an Intel if you want any sort of longevity out of the machine. But if you just want a cheap machine for internet, you can't beat that price.
