    i've always liked those, but the lack of dedicated video is what holds me back from buying one

    thats an absolute rip off for a refurb core 1 duo mac mini, with only 512mb...

    i think you could find much better deals elsewhere...

    ok ok ok, i agree i'm exaggerating a little bit...

    but when you can build your own barebones system with more ram, hd, better graphics, and faster processor... the only + to the mini is the size factor...

    i know mac os, is a huge plus over any barebones system's OS... but if you want the full functionality of mac osx, u prolly want a higher model anyways..

    you do realize this is a MAC forum right? whos talking about building a pc? you'll always be able to build a pc cheaper than you can buy any other computer....mac or pc. thats a moot point

    they've got c2d refurbs up there now.

    everything else the same, would it be noticable to have a 1.83ghz core duo against a 2.0ghz c2d

    the price diff is $200
