Trade my CarCpu for your Mac Mini!! (Or just buy my carputer)

I would like to trade my carCPU Lite system (www.carcpu.com) for a mac mini and a little cash, or sell it for enough cash to get me a mac mini and the cnx-p1900 (approx. 900.00). I would like a mac mini with osx tiger, 1gb ram, and built in bluetooth/airport with all original accessories, like power cord, vga adapter, etc. I love this unit and everyone that’s ever seen it wants one, but I got a mac back in august for the house and now i don’t like using windows anymore.
The carcpu has a few available upgrades that the lite system originally did not come with, denoted in *BOLD* in the specs. Complete specs can be found on www.carcpu.com. I used this computer without a stereo, but you can also connect it to any stereo via aux inputs or fm modulators. This unit is unlike a lot of other “carputer” setups out there, because the MS windows startup and shutdown sequences are integrated into your ignition- it comes on and turns off when your normal car radio would. It installs just like an amplifier- power, ground, and remote turn-on. It does everything a normal desktop computer can do. Here’s the specs:

COMPLETE CARCPU SYSTEM

Features:
- Fully Automated system start-up/shut-down based on ignition key position, incorporating full MS Windows shut-down sequence.
- Software is fully preloaded and configured for easy operation.

(Note: onboard 2 channel sound can still be used if you choose, but sound is MUCH BETTER with this, plus you can fine-tune the audio with more precision)
- Instant File Access for quick MP3 navigation and skip-free music.

In addition to all that, I can either ship it as is (with all the additional programs and files I have on there like norton systemworks 2005, and 30 gb of music) or I can format it first, it’s up to you. here's pics:
