    It's been a while since the 2012 mini was in stock.
    I'm looking for the i7 quad models. I guess after today's presentation, this model should double in price in the refurb store and I was hoping for a small price reduction.

    With the piece of crap they're selling for $1000, I imagine the 2012 quad core will be worth $12-1400 used pretty soon for people who really want a mini.

    I have a slightly used 2012 2.3 i7 Quad for sale with 256GB SSD and 16GB for a mere $2000. :D :p

    I like to add my own ram and SSD (with a second spinner drive for mass storage). It's what makes the mini so great. But your offer is still a much better deal than the 2014 steaming pile Timmy dropped.

    It's obvious the focus on what users need is gone; prices are up despite the fact that they offer $499 toy.

    I never get good deals, but I possibly got one of the best deals in Mac Mini history. A few months ago a guy advertised a shrink wrapped 2012 4 GB 2.6 GHz i7 for $500. I was all over it. It turned out to be a shrink wrapped 2012 8 GB 2.3 GHz i7, but I took it anyway. I put the $214 512 GB Crucial MX100 in myself. And because it was so new, I now have free iWorks in my entire house. Today was such a non-event.

    I've got you both beat. Nine month old 2012 i7 2.3GHz with OSX on a 960GB Crucial M500 SSD and 16GB of Crucial RAM - $2250.

    As bonus 26 months of Apple Care if it's transferable, at no extra cost!
