    Alright... I want a new MacBook (black) badly, and I have a bunch of stuff I don't really need, despite the fact I like having it around. Anyway, here's what I have to get rid of, and hopefully help pay my way towards a shiny new Mac:

    • iMac G3 333MHz - Old, green system running OS 8.something. Works fine. All old school, but could be upgraded to a usable machine with a new harddrive and a bunch a RAM. No keyboard or mouse on this one. Or manuals. Just the Power supply. $80??

    • iPod nano - white 2GB model. As the name implies. I'd sell it with it's skin too. I hardly use it. Bought it out of impulse. Boxed. Minor scratches typical of model. $120??

    • Box of basically all old Mac junk - prefect collectors stuff. I could include a PowerMac, AppleColor Display, "CD Cady," a couple Zip and Jazz drives, a bunch of software, some manuals. The PowerMac 8100 does run. I use it to play vintage games. Works nicely for that. I can post details if anyone seems interested. $40??

    So, if anything seems like something you'd be interested in, just ask. I can take pictures and post more info/answer questions. Once again, just getting a feel for prices and such. I'm very willing to negotiate on prices. Thanks!

    I highly doubt you'll be able to get $200 for that imac g3....

    $125-150 is more reasonable...

    Yeah, but it's signed by Woz, so some collector would probably be willin' to pay for it.

    Hi, thanks for the replies (and PM's) everyone. I'll post pictures later today when I get back from Rhode Island.

    About the TiBook, In addition to being signed by Woz, I also replaced the battery a few months ago, but will include both. $500 is pretty much the minimum I'll go (at least right now) since it is coming with about $200 worth of updated paraphernalia.

    Woz signed your PowerBook G4?? Why the heck would you get rid of it? You should hang it on your wall or sell it in like 50 years!

    Eek, sorry for the delay everyone.

    After a "family discussion," my mother said she's buy a new MacBook sometime in 2007 for me, which by all means is better then me paying for one myself. She'd still like two desktop unites in the house, since there's three computer using people here. Basically, I'll keep the 450MHz iMac G3 and TiBook for now.

    The 333, nano, and old vintage stuff is still up for sale though! Can you guys specify on what iMac you were interested in??

    I actually was kind of leading towards the 450. Good luck with your sale though!:D

    And just for potential buyers, you may want to post the specs of the 333

    I think $80 is a bit high for the imac... MAYBE $80 shipped. I just got a 266mhz on ebay for $8 and in includes the original software, keyboard and mouse.

    You don't happen to have a 45W power supply for a g3PB in your box of junk do you?
