    Hey,

    I have a g4 cube, that has been upgraded with a powerlogix kit, used to be 450mhz g4.

    still has plastic wrapped around it. It's in immaculate condition.

    here's a quick rundown of the specs

    1 GHZ g4 processor, it has a 2 meg l3 cache
    2 sticks of 512 ram
    1 stick of 256 ram
    120 gig 7200 rpm harddrive.
    internal slot load dvd-rom
    internal quiet fan to keep the heat down


    here is a list of whats included:

    the cube, obviously
    USB keyboard
    USB Mouse.
    Firewire 48x CD-RW drive
    Apple round speakers
    the old 450 mhz daughterboard card.
    apples Original discs
    firewire to SCSI connector
    iMic
    and probably some other stuff.
    OS 10.3 Original CD's

    I'm looking to sell this for something a little more portable, a 12" 1.33ghz Powerbook :D

    I am working on a deal for the Powerbook, so all I need is cash,

    Ive seen similar systems go for about 800 - 900 bucks on ebay, without all the extra stuff.

    So I'm looking for around 1000 shipped in the USA for everything.

    I have plenty of references, but I can do escrow.

    Thanks,

    Jason

    Why not just list it on eBay? and you can update people here on how well its going, you might get a good price.

    I will end up doing that if it doesn't sell here first.

    I'd rather not have to deal through ebay, but if the need be, then I will.

    Thanks for the suggestion though.

    Just list it there and have a high resirve price you dont have to sell it untill you get more then what you want. I would buy it off your hand but i am looking for more highend stuff.

    would you consider selling just the cube, mouse, and keyboard?

    How much do you think it's worth?

    I'll do it, since i can probably find something to do with the rest of the stuff.

    Thanks,

    Jason

    You might also try the CubeOwner forums if you don't get enough interest here. It's a great site for Cube fans in general.

    Another Price Drop

    Alright,

    Here is the deal, I need about 850 more dollars for my powerbook fund. If I can get 850 after shipping, paypal fees, etc. I will be in good shape, lol.

    So new price is 850 plus shipping and paypal fees.

    Thanks!

    As of now it won't be able to do dual monitors, but you may be able to upgrade the video card to something that will, I'll have to try and look into that.
