plenty of ppl here try selling a machine similar to this one asking for $500+. thats wishful thinking, your powermac has alot of upgrade potential (ie dual 1.8s) but i hafta say this system isnt worth more than 300 bucks. still not bad but im sure someone will shell out more just b/c its a mac

For your Power Mac G4, I would say a fair price would be around $300-$450. Macs tend to do very well (too well at times) when it comes to resale value. Plus, you have Mac OS X 10.4- a nice little bonus.

That sounds about right. I got an estimate of $257 using the G4 Value (http://www.the-ish.com/g4value/result.php?model=ge3&modelimg=pci&ram=4&hd=5&optical=3) report, but that's without Tiger, the USB card and the wireless card.

Oops, I forgot about the included wireless card and extra USB ports. That will help you fetch a slightly larger sum for your Power Mac G4. :o :)

If for some reason you cant sell it or get what you want out of it, and decide to part it out, I'll put dibs on the cpu NOW....

JLMK please :)

would having the box version of tiger help it? I have all the boxes and software but would it just be easier to sell it outright?

I'm selling this b/c i need a mac mini.

in August, BUT in the listing it said that it may not work and the faceplate was missing for zip drie and 1 usb port was broken, then it said it should be just looked at for parts not to actually do anything wiht but I hope I can get my money back someway
