. That's tied with our August mention and among the best prices we've seen for a quad-core Lion server. (It's also $212 less than the best price we could find for a new unit.) Sales tax is added where applicable. This Mac mini features an Intel Core i7 2GHz Sandy Bridge quad-core processor, 4GB RAM, dual 500GB 7200 rpm hard drives, 802.11n wireless, Gigabit Ethernet, and OS X 10.7 Lion Server. A 1-year Apple warranty applies, the same as new systems.
