    plenty of ppl here try selling a machine similar to this one asking for $500+. thats wishful thinking, your powermac has alot of upgrade potential (ie dual 1.8s) but i hafta say this system isnt worth more than 300 bucks. still not bad but im sure someone will shell out more just b/c its a mac

    For your Power Mac G4, I would say a fair price would be around $300-$450. Macs tend to do very well (too well at times) when it comes to resale value. Plus, you have Mac OS X 10.4- a nice little bonus.

    That sounds about right. I got an estimate of $257 using the G4 Value report, but that's without Tiger, the USB card and the wireless card.

    Oops, I forgot about the included wireless card and extra USB ports. That will help you fetch a slightly larger sum for your Power Mac G4. :eek: :)

    If for some reason you cant sell it or get what you want out of it, and decide to part it out, I'll put dibs on the cpu NOW....

    would having the box version of tiger help it? I have all the boxes and software but would it just be easier to sell it outright?

    I'm selling this b/c i need a mac mini.

    in August, BUT in the listing it said that it may not work and the faceplate was missing for zip drie and 1 usb port was broken, then it said it should be just looked at for parts not to actually do anything wiht but I hope I can get my money back someway
