I am planning to sell a system soon on consignment, what do you think would be a reasonable price for the following system?

G3 Blue & White Tower, 300mhz
448 MB RAM, 6 GB HD
CD-ROM, ATI RAGE 128 (16 MB)
Includes a 17" CRT monitor
Keyboard and Wireless Optical Mouse included
OS 10.1 and 9.2 come preinstalled

I'd say ~$400

The bulk of that price being the machine itself. The monitor and cordless add ~50-100. Extra RAM and SW add little overall since they can be aqcuired for free or very little.

... $500, since you do have so much RAM in it. That's assuming the monitor, keyboard and mouse are in near-perfect condition and everything works. Mc68K is correct, "extras" add very little to the resale value of a computer.

This pretty much is what I was thinking. Though I think it is safe to add on $50-100 due to the prices things tend to go for on consignment there ;)

I wouldn't go higher than $400 on that machine.

A great place to check is to go to Ebay and search the "completed auctions" in the advanced search for similar items. There are probably a half dozen or so recent auctions on similar marchines.

450. 500 is too close to the CRT iMac when u find it refurb.
