    Would you consider selling the mini on its own? if so what would the cost be?

    I suppose I could. Please make an offer and we'll take it from there.

    How does £350 delivered sound?

    That is way on the low side. Thanks for the offer anyway.

    Sorry that you think the offer is too low (I looked up the cost of the additional items, removed some of it because of them being used and added £20 for shipping, perhaps our estimated values of the additional items differed)

    Would you be able to provide a price you could accept for the mini alone?

    Based on the asking price alone, the accessories are actually complimentary and are included in the sale as an added value item. Using your method of evaluation, if I had thrown 2 or 3 more complimentary accessories which could probably cost £50 to buy, would this mean that you'd be expecting to buy the Mac Mini for £300?

    Depending on the value of the accessories then I would've expected the sale amount to be higher (as the accessories could have been sold separately thus rendering more value for the seller)
    I realise that a certain amount of loss on accessories (on behalf of the seller) has to be taken in to consideration when splitting bundled items.

    My calculations were as follows based on prices found via Google/amazon:
    Bluetooth keyboard - £20
    USB DVD writer - £20
    USB Webcam - £10
    Mini display port to vga - £25
    Mini display port to dvi - £25
    Total value of accessories £100
    I then took 40% off the value of the accessories taking I'm to account the fact they are bundled and are second hand
    This left me with a value of £330 to which I added a £20 shipping cost (though royal mail estimated £12)
    Obviously it is harder for me as a buyer to estimate the value you place in bundled accessories, hence why I asked for the cost of the item alone in the original post

    I totally accept your reasoning. What I should have mentioned in the top thread is that the accessories are in fact being given away as an added incentive, since they are no longer required once the mac mini is sold. That way it would have been clearer as to what the buyer is mainly paying for. So it should read, a Mac Mini with FREE accessories. Apologies for any confusion.

    Is this collection only or would you send by courier?

    Hi,

    I could offer £350 plus postage for just the Mac mini as I don't need the other items.

    Thanks.

    It can be collected (thus save on postage) or can be delivered. Just checked the Royal Mail website for prices and it would cost £11 by RMSD, insured up to £500.

    Thank you for your offer. Based on the delivery cost (as per post above), if you can go to £380 including delivery (next day RMSD), we have a deal.

    That's a little on the high side as the last Mac Mini I bought (same spec) was £360 including postage.

    I'm willing to take another fiver off to reflect this. Will accept £375 delivered but won't go any lower. Sorry!

    Price is now reduced to £365 incl RMSD for the Mac Mini only. Final chance to buy here before listing it on that auction site.
