There's a guy in my area looking to sell a 1.66 CoreDuo Mac Mini without the hard drive. He says he's upgraded and pulled the drive. He's only selling the computer itself with the power adapter. It's got either 512 or 1gb of ram, he's not sure. He claims it was 100% working before he pulled the drive. I've been wanting to get a mini to use as a HTPC for video playback and internet usage in the living room on our 50 inch Panasonic Plasma. Do you guys think this would meet my needs and what would be a fair offer? Is the drive too difficult to install myself or could it be done fairly easily? Two years ago I upgraded the drive in my iBook myself with online instructions and that went well. Thoughts?
