o9nly thing i hafta say: good price. ppc min's are running way too high $-wise right now as is.
Yep, 480p only on the Core Solo.One thing worth noting is an Intel Core Solo Mac mini cannot play HD video. A Core Duo can. You mentinoed TV streaming, so if you play to go to HD, then a Core Duo is a must.
Yeah, that's true. And the elgato devices just input over-the-air which isn't much help, as most channels are digital these days. The elgato devices don't do digital.how can I stream live tv? there's no video input on the mini...
I agree, I want to get a G4 mini for my mom on the cheap.o9nly thing i hafta say: good price. ppc min's are running way too high $-wise right now as is.
Hard to Say -- Though MBP refurbs showed up within a month of that products new release. But Core2Duo iMacs didn't start showing up until about a month ago -- nearly a year after they first were released.how long until you think the C2D's will be available as refurbs?
Apple's refurb site restocks regularly around 5am EST most weekdays. You gotta be up early (even by 8am most stuff is still there). If it's not there today -- wait a week and check back in the early AM. By 11 or 12noon, most of the good/cheap stuff is sold out.col127 said:where do you the mac mini's for $479 from apple? i went on their site and it's not listed in their refurb section! i'd be interested in picking up one myself
gizmo... I'm looking for an intel one.... if you're selling one of those now, let me know... hehe
which CoreDuo did you get? how much? from apple?
You have to check first thing in the morning, think 06:00 MST. They seem to be going quick.where do you the mac mini's for $479 from apple? i went on their site and it's not listed in their refurb section! i'd be interested in picking up one myself
what's diff between what you got and what they have on the refurbs now? (specifically the 1.66 model below)I got the 1.66 GHz CoreDuo for $429 from Apple.
I guess I placed my order before you this morning because I bought a refurb 1.83GHz Core Duo Mini today as well and my reasoning was pretty much identical to your's as to the the extra $60 bucks.Apple's still got the $469 1.66 CoreDuo Mini right now as of this posting ...
i just bought the $529 1.83 CoreDuo Mini and after i bought one, i checked back at the refurb section, and that model was gone .. i'm guessing they only have 1 of each .. hehe or the quantities are ridiculously low .. since they had these 2 models a week ago .. as well as about 3 weeks ago ...
in my opinion .. for the $60 difference in the 2 models, is the 1.83GHz model not a pretty good deal? for $60 you get a teeney weeney faster CPU, 20gb more HD space, and the superdrive.
i think the first 2 items may not be as much appealing, but the superdrive option seems to me like a pretty big deal. it makes the difference in being able to burn DVDs or ... well ...... not being able to at all. if the difference was to burn DVDs teeney weeney bit faster, then that's not really a good deal ...
