Found a mid 2011 Dual core I5 8gb DDR3 Mac mini for $50, is it worth picking up? Could this be used for anything more than just browsing the web?
I will keep these in mind, thanks. I have a ssd laying around that I could throw in it if need be but I’m not sure if I could test it. On the picture provided it shows the specs exactly but it is a older system. Il probably pass on it for now. Thanks again.Basically you are making a $50.00 bet.
At most you lose $50.00. However most bets are made with some chance of a greater gain. I do not see a greater gain but that is for you to decide.
Risks: Maybe gets hot and goes poof.....
Are you able to test the Mac mini to determine what it will or will not do? I.e., actually connect to a network and browse.
Check all specs etc..
Are you willing to spend more, if necessary and warranted, to fix and or upgrade in some manner?
