Mac Mini: am I missing something ?

Been looking at replacing my aging MacBook (2.16 ghz,4megs RAM) with a Mac Mini.
$568 at macmall.
Fine, a little more than I want to spend so I check craigslist.

There are multiple listings for two generation old mini's between $450 and $750!!!
Am I missing something??

Newest generation has faster processor, faster graphics, and thunderbolt connection.

Ok, some of the older used machines have some extra RAM but RAM isn't that expensive.

Is there something wrong with the new Mini's so that the older generation are more valuable?
Missing optical drive can't be that important...
