As a student I really needed something that was affordable and reliable for home use. This gave me both and with apple's updates to older models you can't go wrong with the refurbished ones as they work just like new!

The Mac Minis came in great condition! Barely noticed any imperfections. For what I needed, it worked great, though the HDD is starting to show some age; I'd recommend going for an SSD if you have the budget.

The product arrived in a very reasonable amount of time, was packed carefully, and was in even better condition than I had hoped - it was nearly excellent. There is no noticeable cosmetic blemishes and every single port worked as expected. I would definitely buy from this seller again.

I can't believe I got this price on a full functional mac, very happy with the condition and it booted right up w/o issue. Cheaper than the super inflated and barely capable Raspberry Pi 4s are selling due to shortages hah

Nothing like opening a box expecting used only to see a bright shiny new used. Very good is a understatement. I love it..!

Everything you ever wanted to know about the Mac mini (October 2014) Core i5 2.6 GHz - HDD 1 TB - 8GB

The Apple Mac mini "Core i5" 2.6 (Late 2014/Aluminum Unibody) features a 22 nm "Haswell" 2.6 GHz Intel "Core i5" (4278U) processor with two independent processor "cores" on a single chip, a 3 MB shared level 3 cache, 8 GB of onboard 1600 MHz LPDDR3 SDRAM (which could be upgraded to 16 GB at the initial time of system purchase, but cannot be upgraded later), a 1 TB hard drive, and an "integrated" Intel Iris 5100 graphics processor that shares system memory. Connectivity includes two Thunderbolt 2 ports, four USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI port, Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11ac Wi-Fi (802.11a/b/g/n compatible), and Bluetooth 4.0 as well as an SDXC card slot. Compared to its predecessor, this model looks identical, but it has a more advanced architecture and graphics, Thunderbolt 2 capability, and faster Wi-Fi. On the other hand, it has a processor with half the number of cores, no longer supports Firewire, has RAM that can no longer be upgraded, and no longer supports two 2.5" drives. All Mac mini systems are configured by default without a display, keyboard, or mouse, but numerous Apple and third-party options are available.
