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PowerPC is outdated to as far as 5-7 years. | Report abuse 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. But yeah, man, good call! | Report abuse SimonDIvanoff July 18, 2010 3:47:08 AM Best answer selected by SimonDIvanoff. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>Do I need my Mac Mini?> Related ressources: ForumWant to build a linux system not much bigger than a Mac Mini ForumMini Display Port to VGA not working on Mac Mini after Mountain Lion upgrade ForumDeciding between mac mini and iMac ForumNAS unit to supplement 2011 Mac Mini Home Theatre - Build or Buy?
