it is probably worth a little under 1,000 dollars maybe like 900- 950 because of the added ram that youve added, and the warranty really isnt adding that much to the deal it ends in like 8 months

i would think less than that considering you could find a refurbished macbook on apple's site for as little as $749 plus tax.

Huh? I can get a 1.67ghz Powerbook with 2gbs of ram and a 100gb hard drive for that price/ I can get a Mac Book for 700 bucks.


I would not pay more than 450 for that machine and that is only because it's still miraculously got applecare.

sorry...

I thought Powerbook G4....for some reason...... THOSE still have very high resale.... If you have over a gig of ram though start at like 650-700 because RAM additions for apple are way pricey...
SOrry again

I would say you could maybe get around 400-500 at this point.
