Mac mini prices!
« on: December 09, 2010, 11:34:35 AM »
Wowzers!!! Just finished bidding on a mac mini g4 1.5ghz.
The price was an astronomical £215 plus a tenner for p+p!
eBay prices:-sheesh. Any ways I was unsuccessful...
So I reckon all these bidders must be sticking morph os on them! Ha ha never mind. there's always morph fish in the sea (more fish) geddit! Oh never mind!!!

Took me ages and a bit of luck to get a decent price.
 
managed to get a mac mini silent upgrade from eaby for £150.
 
Just keep looking , the prices always seem to go up after a new version of MorphOS is released.

Check classified ads and try for a private sale. I paid $175 for mine. £215 doesn't sound too bad, though - in dollars, it's on par, maybe a bit lower than what Apple dealers over here are charging.

Just out of curiosity, I wonder how many of those mac mini g4's, will have morph os put on them, there's about 30 or so at the mo on eBay I think!
Perhaps we'll never know...

Beware the iMac G5, very prone to logic board failure. My friend's iMac G5 had 2 failed logic boards in 4 years. I'd be exceptionally cautious considering MorphOS's licensing scheme.

The 1.5Ghz model is highly sought. A 1.42Ghz might fetch half that.

I'm patiently waiting for PowerMac G5 support.  I knew I was keeping these around for a reason ;)

True. The number of broken G5s regularly appearing on ebay is noticable. There was a survey on G5 reliability by Macintouch some time ago with some interesting facts:
