    Hi

    Been looking around where to buy a used/looked after Mac Mini and these forums seems really well managed, so hopefully I'll be able to source what I'm after

    I'm looking for ideally a 2012 or 2014 Mac Mini, ideally an i7 but will consider an i5. 16GB RAM and with a 256GB minimum SSD or a 1TB fusion drive upwards (ideally the original 1TB HDD with a 120GB SSD or upwards)

    Needs to be in full working order with no damage and running the latest OS

    Preferably boxes with original power cable as well

    I'm based in Bamber Bridge, near to Preston. Happy to collect within a sensible distance, or happy to have it sent via an insured courier (Royal Mail, Parcelforce, UPS etc)

    Budget is c£500, but happy to pay more for the right Mini (within reason)

    Thank you :)

    I think I have the setup you want... a 2012 quad core i7 (2.3GHz) with two 8GB RAM. I can kit this out with a Sandisk 120GB with a 1TB drive (perhaps a Seagate SSHD or Hitachi HDD) or two 1TB Seagate SSHDs. Box is not in mint condition - but very good and of course the original Apple power cable. The underside may be slightly scratched.

    What do you think?

    EDIT: no longer available

    Thanks. Sounds spot on

    I might be sorted already via one of the Honda forums I'm on, local seller too

    I'm going to look at it on Wednesday, so will update then

    For my info, what price would you be after with the 120GB SSD and 1TB HDD?
