  1. I looked at these refurbs a few weeks but when all was said and done I ended up with a 17″ iMac G5, 2Ghz, 512Mb, 160Gb, Airport+Bluetooth for $949 including shipping.

    As my old computer was a G3 iMac, I would’ve needed a monitor. Adding a decent monitor to the price of the mini put me in iMac territory.

    It’s a great machine. You can get some good bargains on Apple’s refurnished page.

  2. If only they had international shipping (to New Zealand). They don’t have refurbs here in NZ and the cheapest mini is still US$660 (NZ$949).

    I’d definitely grab one (or two) for US$379. Lucky for some I guess.

  3. I’ve purchased 6 refurb Macs (various models) over the years from Apple. Each one was like new and I saved quite a lot of money. MDN is right, you’ll need to beef up the RAM from the base that Apple offers, but otherwise, I recommend buying Apple refurbs to everyone. It’s especially a great way to buy your first Mac.

  4. zzzzzzzzzzzz.more ads…….no news…….zzzzzzzzz
    Hey, MDN how about every day you put up a list of apple products for sale and their prices…. what wonderful news.
    zzzzzzzzzzzz.more ads……no news…….zzzzzzzzz

  5. MDN stop horing out your readers. I’m sick of hearing about these “great deals” from this site. No other Mac site does it and I really can;t think of any other site that uses these types of tactics. Stop it or you will lose yet another reader.

  6. “Remember, with Mac OS X, you’ll want at least 512MB of total RAM (get a solid 1GB of RAM, if your budget allows)”

    And people complain about Vista’s hardware requirements?

    Granted, 512MB-1GB of RAM is no big deal nowadays but lets not have any double standards.

    Yawn. Don’t let the door hit your @ss on the way out then…
