Solved Do I need my Mac Mini? Tags: Prebuilt Mac Mini Systems Last response: July 18, 2010 3:47 AM in Systems Share SimonDIvanoff July 16, 2010 5:35:48 PM What's up, guys? Now that I'm trying to build my i7 machine, I want to get this money together ASAP by selling things that I will most likely never use. 1st on my list is an early-gen Mac Mini that was pre-Intel Processor. It's: 1.25 Ghz PowerPC G4 1 GB DDR SDRAM and I think a 50 gb Hard Drive I purchased this 2nd hand about a year ago and never found a use for it. So my question is; is there really any use for this old and slow of a machine at this point? I love the MAC interface and OS, so I feel bad getting rid of this convenient little machine, but if I can get $250 out of it, that will pay for my new MoBo. Let me know what you guys think, as I can't think of any reason to hold on to it!

PowerPC is outdated to as far as 5-7 years. Share SimonDIvanoff July 18, 2010 3:46:59 AM Thanks for the reply, dude! I threw it on eBay and for $175 for it. That will almost buy the new MoBo.
