    Are you interested in the monitor also?

    With monitor I'm thinking around $750+50 for shipping. I just haven't seen any others out there that are as loaded as this one. It doesn't have 10,000Rpm SCSI drives but the Maxtor 45gig 7200Rpm gives a constant throuput of around 30MB/s which has been more then enough for anything I have needed to do.

    I have all the original boxes, packaging, manuals, and paper work. With the original boxes there should be no problem shipping.

    If you think my price is out of order just let me know and we'll talk.:)

    It's my Birthday today. It would be a nice present to me if someone bought my computer from me today.

    Good luck man, but honestly, G4's are selling for less than $700 now. While you do have some nice additions, our trusty old B&W's just aren't pullin' in the dough they used to.

    The local Apple store is selling stripped down B/W G3s 350Mhz with no monitor for $750. I don't know how they do it but they do. I searched eBay and there have been some recent sales of B/W G3 with hardly any ram or anything in them with monitors (granted they weren't very nice monitors) for $650-$700.

    If this doesn't work out I might lower the price. I just don't think it's too much to ask. $500 for the computer and $200 for the monitor.

    When you are selling on eBay how do you protect yourself from getting screwed over? Do you demand payment before you ship, does EBay act as a third party in the exchange and keep things fair?

    You have a few choices. One is to do the transaction through a company like PayPal. They have a basic set of gaurantees in effect to protect both parties from fraud. You can also have eBay receive the payment and hold it until the buyer receives the package and checks it out. Most of the time though I receive payment first usually through paypal or some other form and ship the product when the money clears. There is a certain amount of good faith on the part of the purchaser. So far I haven't been screwed as a buyer or seller. I once received a package heavily damaged and the seller refunder all my money and I returned it at my own expense. I felt it was the least I could do since it wasn't his fault that the shipper played, "Ace Ventura," on the package.

    Hey thanks. I agree, most people don't know what they are looking at here. I really put a lot into this thing.

    Not to press this, but can't you see that no one is willing to shell out that money for this machine. yes your upgrades are nice, but at this point MUCH faster machines are selling for $700 on ebay.

    '

    Actually I have a bidder for it. His problem is he is on the road. So he wouldn't be able to make payment until the end of next week. At least that's there story. So I made an agreement with him and restarted the auction I fully expect them to bid today or tomorrow.

    I have had a lot of interest in it just a bunch of people that don't currently need computers or are way out of country and I'm not interested in dealing with payment and shipment to the Phillipines.

    The much faster machines are selling with hundreds of dollars less in hardware and with in many cases no monitor or crappy monitors. This machine will be blazing fast with G4 upgrade. Also my local Apple store has been selling these things stripped with a 350MHz G3 for $700 without a monitor.
