    It really depends on whether or not the software licenses are included. If they aren't, you might want to edit your post not to conatin the software, because that is considered pirating software on these boards...

    I don't know yet if I am going to sell it, but yea it would come with the software licenses as well. If i were to sell it, im not sure how much i should ask for, or how much the reserve would be on ebay.

    Well, shoot, the software is worth almost as much as the computer, especially if you have the pro versions of all that software.

    The computer itself is probably worth $800 or so, give or take.

    It might be best to sell the software separately, especially if you have the original disks/packaging.

    The original computer was $1099... added RAM... added AE... should fetch you around $900 alone, in my thinking, since it isn't more than an year old at the most. The included software would up the price by a lot though.

    You could get $1,000 CAN easy for your iBook, you figure out what that is in USD
    just advertise at universities and the students will gobble it up.
    I am selling my 700mhz iBook for $1,050 CAN on Jan 10th with out any software except what it came with.
