For $499 you can get a BRAND NEW Mac Mini.  The mini is a 1.25 GHZ G4, 
and is only 6.5" by 2".  It is about the size of a typical O' Reilly 
book.  Not only is it a great solution for testing, it is also great 
for a easy to set up server, or as a media center.  You won't find 
anything nearly as awesome as the Mini on eBay... well not for $499 at 
least.  The Mini is just the box, no Monitor, no moues, and no 
keyboard, but if you have one lying around, or extra that you don't use 
anymore, you can use them with the Mac mini.  The are not sipping yet, 
but will be soon.  I would wait, and get one while you can, they are 
gonna' sell out quick.
