The door bell rang yesterday and I let out an uncharacteristic "yay", as I knew it was a delivery and it was my new Mac mini.
Didn't I buy a Mac mini this time last year though? Yep! However, this one is an Intel Core Duo model, which makes a big difference! Different enough to warrant the couple of hundred pounds it will cost me to switch. More on that tomorrow.
As with my first mini I upgraded the RAM myself. Although Apple have dropped the price of RAM upgrades to a reasonable level it was still £3 cheaper to buy my 2GB* from Crucial, although that's not the reason why! I ordered from Crucial as they consistently deliver the next working day. Apple want 3 working days to make any modifications. So, I saved three quid, got it three days earlier and have 512MB of RAM to spare/sell.
Now I have a spare Mac mini for sale. Anybody want to buy it? Get your first taste of what all the fuss is about, while being able to test sites in Safari etc. A legitimate expense for any self-respecting web developer and easily explained to the other half.
Comes with a 40GB hard drive and a writeable CD-ROM, although there's no wireless or Bluetooth installed. It's a basic machine and ideal for somebody curious about the other side.
How much do I want? Any sensible offer considered (in the region of £250). I'll throw in free shipping.
* Yes, two gigs. All will come clear tomorrow.
