Technically you can't sell Office, because it is the student version and states on the box that you can't resell it

I don't think $800 is very reasonable. As someone can get a refurb 1.42 Super on Apple at $849.

Just thought I'd say that

just thought i'd share a similar one on ebay for price comparison (auction already over):

http://cgi.ebay.com/eMac-1-25-1GB-RA...QQcmdZViewItem

i think your pricing is very reasonable considering their version of tiger is probably fake, and theirs doesn't have bluetooth... and yours has AppleCare! that's really good

price drop! $750 shipped!
the apple store has this machine for $680, without the airport card ($70 value), bluetooth (a dongle's like $30 bucks AND it's external as opposed to my machine's built-in bluetooth) plus mine has upgraded ram (768mb), and free applecare through december '07!!! buying this machine refurb'd from apple, then upgrading it yourself would cost $830, not even talking about tax and applecare! (assuming $50 for ram)
local pickup is always welcome, and all reasonable offers will be entertained!! (no trades, sorry )
i pretty much need to sell the machine THIS WEEK!

I think he means that they pirated their copy of Tiger, therefore making it illegal to use.

I would recommend putting this up on ebay. I've tried selling things on forums before, and you just don't get the exposure of ebay. I've had some fantastic luck on ebay in the past.

Good luck

Hey,
I REALLY want this computer, and my dad is willing to pay $650 via Paypal for it if you are still selling it. (I'm 16.) I live in Gilbert, AZ. I am seriously very interested in this. My email is veronicaryan<at>gmail.com and would really appreciate it if you would please contact me as soon as possible.

I'm just curious, buy why exactly are you having to sell it?

It's such an awesome Mac, don't you have some organ you're not using or something?

Nice listing.

Even thought a 1.2 gig processor isn't blazingly fast...
