View Full Version : Need Advice: How much for a G4 System

Aug 11, 2003, 12:05 PM
Hi there:

I am upgrading to either the 17" iMac or the 1.6 Ghz G5. But to do so, I need to sell my beloved G4. Here's the skinny on it:

AGP 500
40GB 7200rpm HD
80GB 7200rpm HD
nVidia Ge Force 2MX 32 MB vRAM
Pioneer 105 Superdrive
AirPort card installed
Comes with MAC OS 10.1 install disk.

Also, would come with Sony SDM-X52 15" LCD Display and ADC-DVI adapter.

A guy at work is very interested in buying my system. How much should I quote him for a price?

any tips strongly appreciated!

i'd check ebay to see what similarly equipped macs are going for. i think everymac.com lists current value for old systems as well. then you can add on for what you've put into the mac.

I've tried eBay, but it seems all the ones there are being sold pretty much stripped. I know I can't just add up what I've spent upgrading it and add it on to a street price named in everymac,com, so I guess I was looking for what you guys might think is fair. I was thinking around 1200 including shipping, but I am of course flexible on that price. You think I should post it in the classifieds in these forums? Any of you guys/gals interested?
