    Adobe Photoshop 7
    40 GB Hard drive
    450 Mhz PowerPC G4 Processor
    640 MB RAM
    DVD ROM drive
    56K Modem
    10/100 Ethernet port
    Airport Card for wireless networking
    Apple Pro Key board
    Apple Pro Mouse(optical)
    2 Harman Kardon speakers and AC adaptor

    I would say $1000 would be a great deal for a 450MHz Cube, CD Burner and the speakers. I know that when I got my monitor and 500MHz G4 Cube over a year ago it was around $2000 total (I got a Fct.Ref. Apple 15 inch for $529).

    For cheap monitors (mostly CRT) go to www.smalldog.com

    For cheap RAM go to www.18004memory.com

    Try www.dealtime.com for a large selection of monitors. Specify CRT/LCD and a number for inch size for a monitor.

    fair enough...

    i'd be willing to sell my 450 cube with a gig of ram, 80gig 7200 seagate barracuda, dvd, os10.1.5, and a 15" lcd apple studio display for $1400.. but uh.. yours sounds fair too... :)
    good luck!

    Photoshop and X Server is almost worth 1000.00$ alone

    Re: ??

    Photoshop 7 is still worth $550 to $600 alone. Are you getting the PS 7.0 media (CD, any literature, etc.) as well? If not, $1k is still a fair deal for the specs of the Cube alone, IMHO.

    If the computer comes installed with any software, I think it has no value.

    sounds like a nice deal, in fact i was thinkin of doing the same thing, right before i got my 17" iMac. i couldn't decide which, cause the cube is a very nice machine. good luck with it:)
