    Hi Guys,

    Having dipped my toe in the waters of Apple after some 25 years of using Windows by purchasing an iBook G4 (Loving it by the way!!) I am now hankering after a Mac Mini but looking for some advice as to what to get.

    Looking to by used on eBay, any advice guys?

    What is your budget and what computational needs do you want to fulfill with the Mac mini?

    About 100-200 GBP, web browsing, and e-mail is all that I plan to use it for really.

    Than any Core Duo or better Core 2 Duo Mac mini should do fine. A G4 Mac mini might do too if you stay away from Flash heavy websites like YouTube, though there is MacTubes for that.

    Thats great thanks for the help! Are Minis relatively easy to upgrade?

    Not really that easy, look here for guides on how to upgrade RAM and HDD in the different models.
