This is very tentative. I'm thinking of downgrading from my current setup to an imac because I am just not making use of the MacPro power and could do with a bit of extra money.

Edit: I am tentatively interested in offers and trades (24" Alu iMac only) as well as any more estimates.
So:

Mac Pro 2.66 Quad standard setup with 3GB RAM, an additional superdrive (the second drive is NOT DL), and AppleCare good until Jan. 2010.

Dell 24" 2405 - purchased new in May 2006.

Both are in as new condition. I think I need to add that the machine comes with the original disks - Tiger OS - and all original packaging etc.

Also, I have to move every few years so if you offer a trade, I would need you to be able to ship in original boxes.

Not sure about the 'Pro, but thats a very nice monitor (have one at work). I'd expect that you can get $400-450 for it without any hassle.

Welll... you can get that pro model directly from apple for 2099 less 2gig of ram...

New ones came out, you can get the quad 2.8 for just over 2200 now, just about 2k with student adc discount.

this one is slightly slower, and older tech and has one gig less ram there.

I'd say with the extra drive and the applecare you could get between 2k and 2300 depending where and when you sell it (if you don't sell it before the new ones hit the refurb store in a few months i'd say less)

If you're interested, feel free to make an offer here or via PM. I'm guessing from ebay prices that your set-up is worth around $1,300 - 1,500?

I have an iMac I may be interested to trade. Here's my specs:

Core 2 duo 2.4ghz
4gb ram
320gb hard drive
apple extended care until 8/11/08.
Original cd's (tiger OS) packaging and documentation.
New slim keyboard (no mouse).

Also, does anyone know the site that allows you to configure used macs to get a price estimate?

Thanks,
Mike

As tempting as that is, I'm afraid not. I'm looking for an iMac specifically.
