For sale is a late 09 mac mini server. Intel Core2Duo 2.53GHz, 4GB RAM, 2-500GB Hard Drives. $750 OBO
Machine is in perfect shape, was barely used the year and a half i've had it. Bought it to get a webserver going, but not enough free time to actually get it done so i'm letting it go. It pretty much sat in a closet for most of its life. It's in perfectly working order.
If you purchase the computer for the asking price i will throw in a brand new unopened 64GB SSD drive for free so you can have a blazing fast mac mini.

if you want to see more pics let me know and i'll post a few more. Sorry for the crappy quality, phone is all i had at the moment. can get high quality ones if requested.
Have a good one
:D

Hey man you may be a tad high in your asking price. you can get a refurb 2010 in the apple store for your asking price with applecare. i bet if you came down a 100 bucks you would sell this thing no problem. as for the extra drive your selling i can see that being a benefit but it doesnt look easy to change one of the drives out in the mine.

good luck with your sale!

^^ really, didn't know that. Thanks for the heads up. New asking price will be $650; i'll install the SSD if the buyer wants me to at no extra charge. I've swapped out drives on minis a few times. Takes about 20 mins to get done. No biggie.

Talk to me; i'm all ears :D

I didn't want to say anything earlier...but since the discussion of price has popped up. As you probably know...the only differences between a "regular" Mac-mini and the Mac-Mini server are:

- the Mac-mini server has two hard drives & no optical drive
- the Mac-mini sever has the more expensive server software

Since the 2nd HD in the Mac-mini server is actually less expensive than the optical drive found in a "regular" Mac-mini...this doesn't explain the price difference. Thus the main price difference is the server software.

If this was a "regular" Mac-Mini...it would be worth around $400-$450...so even the reduced price of $650 for this Mac-Mini server is not a very good price...UNLESS...someone actually wanted to use it as a server (with the server software). Or if you did install an SSD drive...then that would also increase it's value.

Good luck,:)
