I spent a good week trying to buy a t7200 off of Ebay for under $250. Didn't happen. So, I just bought a new one from an Amazon partner today...having it shipped home.

When I get home for good from Iraq, I'll use it to upgrade my kids' core solo mini. The CS was a big disappointment from the day it arrived at our door step. I had purchased it and an iSight for my kids. The performance with things like photobooth is down right disgusting. I promised them we'd eventually upgrade it.

Nice! I bought a stock Mac mini 2.0 GHz a week ago and upgraded the RAM to 2 GB and put a Hitachi 200 GB 7200 RPM HDD in it and the machine flies! Good luck!

The 7200 is a good chip. You will be very happy with it.
