Ebay deal for an i5-4590 7020 SFF modelSeller is saying these are in grade A condition. Price is very reasonable. You'll need to supply your own SSD.
For the cost of a new i3-8100 you get the whole computer which includes the i5-4590 that is just about as fast
and powerful as the i3-8100. 8GB of ram, PSU, motherboard and case too. Can't beat this deal for an entry level small hackintosh. Quiet and energy efficient too. Costs way less than a new base level late 2018 mini. If you figure in 25 dollars for a 128 GB SSD, it's still $650 dollars less than the new Mac mini. You could even install an NVMe SSD with an adapter via the PCIe x16 slot if you will use integrated graphics. See the HP 250 GB version in post #1 of this User Build.
