    So, it's been a really, really long time since I've seen a refurb Mac mini available! And just while browsing, I happen to see that the refurbished 2.0GHz / 1GB / 120GB HDD Mac mini is available at the Canada and US online Apple Store. If you can't wait for the new mini but don't want to pay full price for the low specs, here's your chance.
    Hopefully this means they are trying to clear out as many Mac mini's as possible for the release of a new one.

    Btw, I also checked the UK store and they were out of it, along with the MacBook air, iPod classic, iPod touch, Apple TV.

    They go quickly - $499 for a Mini is a great deal.

    Buy them while you can - until the new Mini without FireWire and an Atom processor come out instead... :eek:

    :D

    I've been browsing the refurb store (US) for some weeks now, and the mini comes and goes quickly. I have seen it several times in the last few weeks, however.

    A couple of weeks ago they were available most of the week. I too thought this might mean Apple was clearing inventory (new ones being sold as refurbs).

    $499?! I saw it for something like $679.
    And if the new Mac mini has an Atom processor I'll definitely be getting a refurbished previous gen.

    wow, $200 -- I can't believe it, that is a really good deal.







    (about what it's worth.)

    Holy crap.

    - and $699 for the 17 inch 1.83ghz white iMac?!

    Some iPod Shuffles are $29 too. Why so bargain generous? Hmm!

    :D Please stay there until I get my bonus.

    Edit: iMac gone already. Didn't I ask nicely?

    They still have refurbs for the 17 inch G4 iMac?!
    For as long as I've been an Apple fanboy, two years, I have never seen one of those available.

    Apple still makes a 17" Intel iMac for educational institutions to purchase... once in a while they make their way into the Refurb store.

    Holy crap! You guys are right.
    A few hours ago it was there... now it's gone.
    Along with the 17 inch Intel iMac I also noticed the had an aluminum iMac (forget what screen size) with an Intel Core 2 Extreme, I didn't even know that was ever offered.

    That would be the 24" 2.8GHz Alum iMac. The word "extreme" was just differentiating the top of the line iMac from the lower end ones when they first came out.


    Oh and I see white iMacs on the refurb store all the time. Make the refurb store your homepage and you will see it too. :p
