    on ebay someone is selling an iMac 1.8 ghz processor with 2 gigs of ram but the hdd controller is bad on it.
    this is the description
    20" iMac G5, 1.8Ghz, no hard drive, 2GB RAM M9250LL/A
    This iMac has a bad hard drive controller and does not come with a hard drive.
    Everything else works fine. It will even boot from the CD (as shown)!
    Original OS install CD NOT included.

    If you know how to fix the hard drive controller or need an iMac for parts, this will be a great deal for you. Everything else works: 2GB RAM, Superdrive, no dead pixels, all ports ok.

    Here are some of the specs:
    1.8 Ghz G5 processor
    2 GB RAM
    20" all-in-one
    NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 Ultra with 64 MB of DDR SDRAM
    Superdrive DVD-R, Dual layer
    Airport/Wifi, Bluetooth, Firewire, USB, modem, ethernet

    is it worth it? he is only asking about 70 dollars for it right now, would it be worth the money to try to fix it without to much difficulty?

    The parts alone are worth more than $100.
