I found that out a while ago.I did pretty well for the first time barely bending any of the aluminum.

Wow, some people in here like to hoard! I used to own a whole lot of Apple things at one point, until recently my OCD kicked in and i started selling or throwing away things. Over the years (since I was 11), I've probably owned around 50 Macs and more Apple items. Now, I have:

iMac G4 15" 800
iMac G4 20" 1.25
iPod mini 4gb
iPhone 4GB
Apple Studio Display 15"
Apple QuickTake 200

I want a lime iMac, lime or indigo iBook, and PB G4.
@macdctr, you have a beautiful set of notebooks! The 3400/G3 are my favorite pre-WallStreet designs, along with the Duo. The Pismo is a beautiful laptop too.

I would kill for a Cube,I would use it as my media center instead of a PowerBook.
Hey, Guess what I am now typing off of?

I got it for $380 with the original box and accessories, what an excellent deal.

I don't even have a job (yet), I'm just too young to be hired anywhere.

If you sell all your iBooks (minus your graphite) you could make around $200, maybe $300.

I sold my iMac G4 for $200, and had $150 saved up so I gathered up $30 and I was good to go.

The price was actually $450 but since I bought a PowerMac G3 from the guy a few months back, he gave me a discount. Very awesome seller, he said he collects them like me and he bought his wife a clamshell (which reminded me of your collection)

Young, that's all you need to know (sorry, I don't mean to so blunt, but I am old enough to qualify for Mac Rumors)

I wish I could have kept the iMac, though the 1Ghz processor was really holding me back and I was able to get a relatively good price when I sold it.

If I ever do get back into collecting I'l probably get into the notebook market. They have much better designs than the desktop market, Maybe I'l pick up an iBook G3 Clamshell, and possibly 12" G4 iBook.

Ok,sorry,I was just wondering since you said you were to young to get a job.Cool that you have some cool Macs at your age.I wish I had cooler machines when I was younger.

It's not actually a 366Mhz Indigo though.It's a 466Mhz board in a semi worn case.But it works great and has 576Mb ram and a 40GB HD and Airport.

Got mine for on CL for $250! Craigslist is amazing. Everything I pick up is either a huge rip off or the score of the century.

I wish some of my friends were Mac users, they all use PCs and could care less what computer they use.

So far, I'm a lone wolf.

I get spoiled with good Macs every week,as my church is a all Mac church and I'm an intern youth leader so I get to use 2 C2D while plastic iMacs every week for a couple of hours.

Lol, a "Mac" Church, May the Apple be with you.

Anyways, we are heading out later today to get a screen for my Grandmother's new Mac Mini (formerly mine) since her late 2006 iMac has the infamous line problems. (13 and counting)

I would like a G4 Mini for a entertainment center in my room.That would be sweet,or a brand new baseline Mini would be awesome.

Yeah, the minis are pretty cool, but not enough horsepower for me and not enough expandability.

I got her up and running on it about an hour ago, she gave me her old 1.83Ghz Intel C2D 17" iMac with the infamous line problem (will call Apple support later to get that resolved)

Pretty nice, it only has 512Mbs of RAM so no Snow Leopard for me but it will be fine until I get enough to buy my i7 iMac. When I was at Bestbuy looking for a Monitor, I went and demoed the 27" iMac and it is HUGE, I am convinced already =]
