    I have just purchased a replacement for my very elderly Performa 6400--an iMac 400 DV. It's a pretty good set-up (almost 200MB RAM, 30GB hd, OS X) that suits me well. However, cruising eBay I came across a Blue Dalmation iMac, & having wanted one of these for ages, placed a bid (it's also got some extra features, such as faster processor & more memory, that I like):

    http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI...4607&item=4131534349&ssPageName=STRK:MEBBI:IT

    I'm wondering if the fact that it's a Blue Dal. means that it is ultimately worth more... I'm not too sure about how limited the BD & the Flower Power iMacs were. EveryMac.com suggests the current value is US $600-750, but to be honest the values there seem a little inflated to me (compared with what you can get on eBay).

    Suggestions & comments welcomed :)

    i think its price is a bit higher cuz the fact its a dal; should be 500-650; i dunno about 750, but then ur competing with ppl who want it for collectability.

    wasn't it so limited because no one wanted them? i remember when they were in stores around here, no one would buy them. i really wouldn't put much stock in collectability, maybe $20 at most, if they're hard to find at the time. it's probably not going to hold a high resale, even if you pay for one...
