A couple points from me:
1. The Mac Mini G4s aren't dual core. Also avoid the Intel Core Solo models. They are slow, and I wouldn't recommend them for the uses you suggest.

2. From having similar...

Nick, dead right. Interestingly the G4 Cube USB speakers have worked with my MacBook fine, although now they are connected to my Cube.

Nick is absolutely right, the prices some sellers are asking are far too high for what you're getting.

I had a look at buying one of these a few years ago.

Just a quick question, does it have S.M.A.R.T. status "verified"? ie, the HDD itself isn't failing? I was trying to install Snow Leopard on an old HDD from another computer, and it turned out Disk...
