I'm *so* glad you weren't selling this last year!

I was seriously looked at getting a Mac to do some software development for conventions (and potentially for iPhone apps) ... *now* I realise I don't have the money or the spare time :-)

I'm very glad not to be selling you another computer to add to your clutter!

"have two, they're small" ... :-)

I have several older computers that I need to figure out what to do with ... but nothing recent. I got a couple of old work machines from years back (I think one is a Pentium Dual core which puts it between the Pentium 4 and the Core 2 Duo in terms of power, so slow by modern limits but probably faster than my main 2.4Ghz P4 home machine), otherwise I've got a couple of Celeron desktops and an AMD Athlon 2000 (which I think dates back to about 2002))

Our Mac Mini sits in the hi-fi stack, and talks to the flat screen TV via HDMI. It has a wireless keyboard and mouse, but runs Plex all the time, pulling music and video over the network, is is mostly controlled by an iPhone app.

I just love technology ... :)

You *swine* ... :-)

I *do* have room on the hifi rack ... what I don't have is a flat screen TV or *anything* that speaks/uses HDMI.

And I *do* have an iPhone ...


We only have a flat screen telly because South Western Electricity put a power spike through the house in Bristol, destroying television, amp and Pete's lovely old irreplaceable Bowers and Wilkins speakers :( (we got new ones but they're not the same). The insurance company paid for it all.

Of course, Apple make a DVI to composite/S-Video adapter.


Hello! Wandered over from a selling comm :) I was wondering, if this hasn't gone yet, how much you reckon it would cost to post? If it is indeed postable! I'm in Bristol. Thanks!

It’s certainly postable! The Mac Mini is quite small, and I can imagine that it would happily survive the Royal Mail after being smothered in bubblewrap. The Mac weighs about 1300g, and the power supply about 800g. Adding these together puts us in the 2kg—10kg price range for Special Delivery, which is a rather eye-watering £21.65.

Posting the Mac separately from its power supply would give postages of £8.65 and £6.70 with Special Delivery, totalling a still pricy £15.35. Looking at ParcelForce, their express48 with additional insurance would cost £18.

Don’t know whether those prices are ok for you; I’m open to suggestions for most cost-effective ways of posting it (assuming they have tracking and insurance).
