Used minis are also a pretty poor lot because they're just not depreciating all that fast. Even the pre-Intel ones aren't going for much of a discount. Buying one used just isn't much of a break --not enough to cover getting a warranty and the latest OS that I'd get with a new Mac.
Now then, I just noticed Micro Center has G4 minis on clearance for $450. That's not a huge discount from the Intel mini's price of $600, so my question is this. Given that the sum-total of my work with this Mac will be the following:
1. Porting my games.
2. Ensuring that my web-games look right on Mac browsers.
Would I be better served getting a $450 G4 Mini or a $600 Intel Mini?
Also, what's a good KVM switch that'll let me use the Mini with my existing Dell 20-inch monitor(s) and USB mouse and USB keyboard?
