I Just sold Early 2009 Mac Mini on eBay for US$365 + Shipping. 1 week ago I bought a brand new Base 2011 Mini for $499 + tax (Staples sale). I added a 128GB Samsung SSD for $96.50 (on sale). I added 8GB RAM from Crucial 42$. I just cannot believe how well these machines are holding their value! It has just cost me about $350 including all eBay fees etc. to upgrade a 3 year old Mini to the most recent version including SSD, RAM. Just unbelievable!
