    I know it's low but I'm gonna offer £500 all in. I can get a refurbed 2012 Mac mini base model from apple refurb meaning full years warranty and free delivery for £419 and that's my first option really but if we can agree the deal I'm happy to deal with you instead.

    I know it's lower than you are looking for but as you aren't having much interest I'm assuming you are asking more than people willing to part with.

    Let me know.

    Hi jouster

    I appreciate your candidness however I feel its prudent to say you have a two year warranty with this mac and two years of phone support with a much higher spec the refurb one of a later year.

    I'd like to split but like I said the accessories are linked with the mac Minis AppleCare. I may look into other venues if I get no joy :).

    Ok sir.

    Appreciate your position too.

    Ill leave my offer on the table (was collected price FYI) in case you change your mind as if you went "elsewhere". if you get £650 for it you'd be paying quite a chunk in fees too.

    Either way good luck with the sale.

    Looking at 6-8% off total sales price and I may be able to strike a deal with ups for cheap delivery saving myself £30 at best for my lower price

    Have a good evening :)

    Hi
    So is this a server?
    If not who fitted the drives?

    Nope as the server is an i7. Aasp did the fitting for me as they supplied the cable and I supplied the hard drive.

    You can use it as a server. It's easy to change the drive as I've done it now three times to clean the internal and blow out the dust as well as change to a faster ssd.

    Don't suppose you would be interested in a trade? I've got a 2011 13 inch Macbook Pro unibody?

    I haven't got exact specs as in work but could find out when I got home if it was something you'd be interested in.

    That's a shame as it would have made it nice and simple.

    I am interested in a straight sale but it would have been at the same level roughly as what Jouster has already offered maybe with a bit extra to cover the postage.

    Nah im ok, i will get more for it on other sites. The base unit alone is a cost of £850 so im not going to make a £350 loss as its been in operation a year.

    If you want it stripped down to bare bones and 2GB RAM, then ill entertain your offer.

    The problem is like Jouster has mentioned the cost of refurbed Mac Mini's from Apple for £419 with 4gb or RAM and a slightly better processor. Equally everything you've bought to install is second hand and been in use for a year, but I've been in your position of wanting to get back what I've put in so to speak, so understand you holding out.

    I'll keep an eye on the thread though in case you do drop below £650.

    Depends on what you wanna use it for. Synthetic benchmarks have never given me any reason to buy or not buy something. it may be slightly faster, but its relative to what you do with it. That and the Applecare puts it ahead already in terms of value.

    Take it easy and thanks for dropping by :)

    I agree, just giving you reasons as to why I was only offering £500+P&P.

    The Applecare I agree is a nice perk to make any repairs faster and easier but if the Mac Mini from Apple failed after 2 years they would be hearing from me shouting the sale of goods act.

    Again though I see that it is money you've spent that you want to recoup.

    Good luck with the sale.

    The original price was not changed and yours was an offer if I am correct? The static price was changed and I am no longer accepting offers

    I asked your lowest price and you said £650 which means that became the re starting price as per the classifieds rules.
