So I'm moving to France for a year, and I can't really take my G5 with me. Rather than have it sit around collecting dust, I figure I should sell it so someone else can get good use of it, and then I can buy a laptop to take with me.

Here's the specs:
Dual 2GHz PowerPC G5
1.5 GB DDR400 RAM
250GB Serial ATA HD
8x SuperDrive
NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 Ultra w/64MB DDR SDRAM
Bluetooth
Brand new keyboard and mouse (never used them cause I already had them)
20" Aluminum Cinema Display - no dead pixels
Apple Care good till 24 Sep 2007

Note: This is the older version, with 2 seperate processors (not the dual core version) and with PCI-X not PCI-E

Price: $2300 + shipping (or pickup if you're in the Los Angeles area)
(to buy a similar speced new one would cost over $2900, so I don't think the price is too high, though I haven't done any research to see what they are going for used)

edit: Sorry, I didn't see the display. As long as the display comes with it you may get that out of it.

Would you be willing to sell the display seperately?

Like I said in the post buying it new would cost over $2900. I don't think a savings of $600 seems that unreasonable. I know the G5s are going to be gone soon. But if someone still uses Photoshop or other apps not yet ported to Intel it will continue to be a perfectly fine system for many years to come. But I'm not desperate enough to sell it at any price just because there's rumors of the Mac Pro coming soon.

I would only sell it seperately if the G5 was bought by itself first. Someone already PMed me about it, and as I stated to him, I would still be able to use the display without the G5, but I would not be able to use the G5 without a display. So it's only for sale if the G5 sells.
