    Probably around 400 here, but a ton more on eBay.

    The Intel macs and the mac mini G4s are driving the prices down badly.

    What is your reason for wanting to sell? What is the condition of everything? Does it come with anything (keyboard, mouse, the original HD, the DVI->VGA adapter from the video card, etc...)?

    Im thinking of upgrading to an Intel of some sort, everything works fine. It comes with an Apple Pro Keyboard, Apple Pro 1 Button Mouse, VGA Adapter, The original HD died, but I upgraded it.

    I sold my PM G4 1.25 Ghz, 1.25 GB RAM, 320 GB HD, SuperDrive, nVidia 128 MB VRAM card (the really long one), with Airport on eBay about 2 months ago for $800.

    Maybe you could get something close to ~$730.

    If I were you, I would go the eBay route.

    Yeah I see you have a Core Duo Mini, how does it compare with your old G4?

    It isn't as quick encoding DVD's, but that is because I use Toast (a non-universal program) to copy my DVD's.

    But in other programs, it is lightning fast compared to the G4.

    It does get a little bogged down at times because I still need to upgrade the RAM, but other than that, this thing blows the G4 away in its tiny little package.

    Im resurecting this thread to ask one more question. Do you think I should sell the G4, and Sony SDM-X53 15" Flat panel as a package? Im thinking a 15" is less likely to sell seperatly. It is a nice monitor, very sharp with great color, here are the stats for the display

    500:1 Contrast Ratio
    300 Brightness
    Dual Inputs 1-DVI, and 1-VGA
    ECO Control that automatically adjusts backlight according to ambient light

    So do you think I could get something like $700 or more for the package on eBay?
