Apple Mini

I see some pretty reasonable prices on used Apple Minis on ebay, is there a limit as to how old a unit I should be looking for? All I need it for is to run safari and maybe Sketchup or maybe VMware - Any do's or don'ts?

Thanks, Ken

You can run Safari and SketchUp and VMWare and VirtualBox on a windows machine, but I'm guessing you know that.

Re: Apple Mini

Are those *good prices* for WiFi and Cellular or just WiFi? Warranty? Pieces and parts? Like power cord?

Re: Apple Mini

Actually I was looking for something to put in my shop/basement. I have a small flat screen tv/monitor mounted over the workbench to watch tv/dvds, etc. Then from time to time I need to do the internet thing. I have a source for a reliable rebuild win 7 box for $250 but it has a large footprint and the one I had earlier was prone to viruses via the net. So I saw the ebay minis for just around 150. I just was wondering if the new mac os versions would still run on the older hardware...

Re: Apple Mini

What older hardware? The iPad minis are self contained or are you talking about the Mac mini with OX server?

Re: Apple Mini

Well, I was wondering if the older mini's would run the newest OSx versions. Wikipedia has a pretty good page on the topic that answered most of my questions - Thanks
