    I emailed them, but i am skeptical. A dual G4 should go for at least $300.

    I actually think it's legit. Sounds like a graphics shop upgrading or something. You can find some awesome deals when schools and businesses upgrade. They just want to get these things out the door and get a few bucks back.

    And there's no OS, warranty, peripherals, or discs. Also, $50 is low, but $300 is quite high. you could get a G4 mini that would smoke these for that much. I think about $150-200 is what they're really worth.

    if i lived in the area, i'd pick 'em all up and then sell 'em for 100 a piece. at 100 you figure people will still buy them because it's still pretty cheap, and then you'll have just doubled your money..!

    could you please post back and let us know what they say? My feeling is it's legit, but IMO their reply will make it clear one way or the other. :)

    They haven't emailed me back at all. Seems to not be the real deal for the moment. I hope I get something since I want to play around with a powermac G4

    Here's the response i got from the guy:

    "THE DAY FOR PICK UP ON THE MACS WILL BE
    WEDNESDAY JULY 26th at 2pm
    I will send an email with the location on monday of that week.
    Cash only.
    Please RSVP when you get the email that monday

    Let me restate:
    No guarantees or warrantees and no peripherals included
    NO Operating systems on drives.
    *all hard-drives are 40gb or less
    However they have been tested with an OS over the spring.

    These are the graphite CPU only models. These are not IMacs.

    thanks,
    Pat"

    I just have to find someone to pick one up for me :D

    I re-emailed and hoping for the best. Hey steamboat, if you can't get someone to send you the G4 and I don't get an email, can I take your ticket to goodness? Haha, worth trying

    I might be able to get a friend (who likes windows, but is interested in macs) to buy one for me and one for himself.

    Goodluck, I'll be getting myself one too! I hope that they're not sending these emails to everyone so that it's not a big line of people fighting for 30 macs. Since they're asking for RSVP I guess we're first on the list and if we don't respond they'll move on to the next email

    I just saw that they took down the craigslist post, i guess too many people were interested. I really hope i get one of the computers, specifically a G4.
