ok... a new powermac is 1499 so yeah i think thats a really bad deal but thats me.


the used g4's always seems a bit over priced to me.... this g4-400 is buy it now at 700

also you may want to wait and see if a g5 is release it might inspire a g4 sell off in which you can get a better machien for that range.

thats a horrible horrible price, $600 would seem about right, expessilt considerinh new one with over 2x the specs is only 400 more. if it was the last revision of the quicksilver not MDD i could thatprice for it...


Edit checked www.macofalltrades.com and they list that SAME computer(except with 20 gig HD for $599. so yea thats a bad deel, i think other places sell for even less.

My apologies if I offended anyone.

horrible, horrible deal. Truly awful. It's probably worth about half that. Personally, I wouldn't even pay that, but about $600 is probably fair.

I e-mailed the person with a link to this thread. Maybe that'll convince the lady that it is a horrible price. (Not that I was going to buy it anyway):D

Well I don't think that's a great idea.
If some1 wants to try and sell it at $1100 it's their problem. Not yours.
If you don't want it, then move along.
Linking them to this thread is rather childish.
