    I just got an imac- so time to sell my G5 tower

    It's in great condition- I used it for basic web browsing and some very simple editing in imovie. So the system isn't overused.

    Case is still clean with no dents scratches or dings.
    And I still have the original box

    1.5 gig Ram
    160gig HD

    I'm in LA, Cali so local would mean no shipping charges- but I am willing to ship.


    Make an offer.

    How loud are the G5 towers? Sounds picky but I can't stand noise when I work!

    I never noticed any noise just occasionally if I was trying to do a few things at once- or it was warm out- the fan would kick on.

    It's not deadly silent- but I never had an issue with any noises.

    Really I'm not sure of shipping charges its oretty darn heavy.

    Maybe $600 including shipping?

    Actually looking on Ebay- looks like this goes for about $600 or so without shipping.

    I'd be willing to go for less though.

    And I am willing to talk trades with cash on either side.

    Some things I'm looking for: video cam either 3 chip or HD
    HD TV 46" or over (obviously I'd pay more)

    Or be creative!

    Wow I can't believe someone else lives in West Virginia :D

    Anyway about the G5.. could you post some more specs and maybe pictures? Also, is there anything else you are interested in trading for? Thanks.

    Well as far as specs- it's really the exact specs that came with the original computer I have added nothing to it:

    I actually just got a camera off woot today- so don't need that anymore. Not sure what I'd be looking for in a trade- there really isn't anything I need in terms of computer equipment as I already have hard drives and monitors.

    I'd rather sell it for cash- but again, willing to listen to trades
