Wanted:
WTB: Mac Mini Core 2 Duo - MUST be able to run Mountain Lion

Will Ship To: Anywhere

I'm looking for a Mac Mini that will run Mountian Lion (seems to be early 2009 core 2 duo as the minimum limit).  Note that the photo is of a current version - I pinched it from the Apple website.  I am just looking for an early 2009 Core 2 Duo as the minimum requirement (i.e. must run Mountain Lion).

 

I just want the mini, no keyboard, mouse, monitor, etc.  I want to upgrade the home file / music server to Lion.  Let me know what you may have.  Please PM your offer.

Just a heads up - I have found the best deals on these by far to be on Craigslist.

Agreed.  This is a trusted forum for me, though, so I thought I'd check here.  Thank you!

(I have white and silver Mac Mini (Apple profiler now identifies it as a mid-2007, Mac Mini 2,1) that has a 1.83 gHz C2D cpu, and a non-Apple tech upgraded with 4 GB RAM, a 500 GB 5400 rpm hard drive, and the Super Drive dvd burner.  Mac OS X 10.7 has been installed, but I don't believe you can upgrade these older Intel Mac Mini's further to Mountain Lion because the EFI is 32 bit, not the 64 bit Mountain Lion requires.  I also have Newer Tech Ministack v2 external hard drive / usb hub / firewire hub / with 500 GB Western Digital IDE drive installed that matches the Mac Mini nicely.  Neither is particularly silent if you need a very quiet machine, though)
