first of all, I think most people believe the macmini is overpriced for the spec it delivers. I often hear it said that you could buy a much more powerful and faster computer for way less OR if you just spend a little bit more, MacBook territory, etc. Most people don't appreciate the space this device occupies. I agree it priced but I have always bought cheap and upgraded ram myself. Recently I got the latest and here's what I paid:

as of august 2019:
MacMini 2018 base (purchase date 8/16/2019)
package includes these items purchased separately:
1.macmini (rakuten/goodpoint electronics), $718 less 15% ($107.70) subtotal $610.30 which does not include 5% ($35.90) back from paypal and 1% ($7.18) back from rakuten clickthru; total = $567.22 (i used $421.60 old credits i had stored up to help pay for the purchase)
2.magic mouse (target) $43.63
3.magic keyboard (amazon) $31.62 which included an amazon $60 promo earned of primeday
4.memory 32gb (2 16gb sticks) (amazon) $127.12
Total price paid: $764.59
