    Out of curiosity, how much do you think it's possible to get for a 3 months old:
    Powermac G5 1.8 (Single CPU)
    512 Ram (3200)
    160Gbs HDD
    Combo Drive (DVD-CDRW)
    Ati 9600 Pro
    Airport Extreme
    10.2 and 10.3 OSX included.

    Doesnt include: Bluetooth and dial up modem.

    Everything in perfect working condition.

    {I'm not selling anything yet but my friend offered to buy my g5 and i would get a dual}

    What do you think?

    P.S I built 1.6 G5 on apple.com with similar specs (xcpet cpu speed ofcourse) and that came out to be 1969.00

    Apple is selling these, refurbished, for $1699 with a SuperDrive. A SuperDrive upgrade is normally $200, so a combo drive system would probably cost about $1499. Subtract a bit because it's used, and it might sell in the $1400-$1450 range.

    I just took a look at those. First off 1699 one apple sells doesnt include airport extreme nor does it come with ati9600pro. Seconds, refurbished cost less than used. Because refurbished were returned with some sort of a problem. Whether it was fixed right or not, you never know.

    I'm not saying anything, but i wouldnt sell it for 1500. not loaded 1.6 costs 1800.... whats the point?

    if a brand new 1.6 is going for $1969 and you have a 1.8 with the faster pci slots 8gb ram limit and faster ram than the 1.6, would think maybe 1500-1600
    if you do sell it you might want to do it now before they release new ones in january so that you'll get more

    the best way to check is to find simlar products on ebay in the same condition. look at the ended auction and that will be fair market value. it usually helps to more then few auction to look at. 1-3 auction usually isn't enough to get a good feel.

    Not necessarily a refurbished product could be merely be just an opened package if a customer accidentally bought the wrong product. All opened and repaired products go through the same testing procedures as new items.

    Since when was refurbished priced less than used. Id rather buy refurbished than used. At least it has a new warranty.

    Well for one example i can think of, f you go to any software/videogames selling store like bababges, funcoland etc, any hardware they have there like xbox, ps2...
    refurbished comes cheaper than used.
    I think NEW xbox - 179.99. Used - 149.99. Refurbished - 139.99.

    I would pay about 1800 for that system. Not much more - this is because of the 1.6 and the dp1.8 - sorry mate but life's a bitch.

    try selling it overseas where you can leverage the US$. They think they get it cheap you think you ripping them off. Everyone is happy.
