I was a little leery of this eBay auction because it the mini was offered with only this description:

Mac Mini Bundle, has no memory, works but not great.

The bundle included a 17" Apple Cinema display and the Apple ADC/DVI converter. The eBay picture didn't show the monitor working. I lost the first auction but got a second chance offer. This made me nervous too. It arrived today in a box loosely packed with newspaper. I threw some RAM in the mini and fired everything up. Not only does everything work, but there was a Firewire iSight thrown in the box, and that wasn't in the eBay listing! $185 for the 1.25 GHz mini iSight, ADC/DVI converter, and 17" Apple Cinema Display. Not too bad!

Wow. You did get really lucky. The rogue iSight alone is worth almost what you paid for the whole bundle!

Good score! Very fortunate on this auction James.

Yes I heard you talking about this deal on the podcast. It's rare to stumble upon such deal.

I'm buying this card for my Mac Mini G4 used as a mediacenter.
The card plugs into the Airport PCI, and will allow to read HD videos (even 1080). It's the only feature missing from this marvelous Mac.

Cool monitor James!! Last month I bought the 22" Cinema, and 15" studio versions of this one, along with a ADC?DVI adapter all for $225. I didn't think that was bad. The Cinema Display is being used as an extended desktop on my Mid 2007 24" iMac (2.8GHz Core 2 Duo Extreme, w/4GB RAM), and the Studio is going to be used as a spare display. I've always wanted one of these "easel" displays to do digital photo work on, even before I wanted to switch to a Mac!! LOL
