    I have no idea how much to sell it for... maybe try a NO RESERVE!!! auction and see what happens. :p

    However, I did want to say... Congrats for making the switch to mac. You'll be much happier. :)

    ya, my friend hates me for it. he is a pc freak. i start giving him reasons why mac is better(you know the usual) and all he says is that PC's are better because you can play more games on them. this is the funny part, he says its not the os he likes, just PC's in general.:confused: :D

    I think could get $250 or so tops. Dell and others offer brand new computers from $399. Its also going to cost a lot to ship the CPU and the CRT.

    They are most assuredly not too slow. They lack DirectX which is the primary force for graphics these days.

    The Macbook won't do too hot due to the integrated graphics.

    But, the Intel Macs running windows do very well against PC's in the same league. Tell him to do his homework, or shut up.

    Why not think you will get $1000 since they are both way off.

    If I remember these sold new at costco for $799 with monitor?

    $100! or less check ebay auctions... Shipping will cost more then computer.

    Wait you have the AMD chip then more.. maybe $200....not sure it will be a tough sell

    I brought a new dell with with a 17 LCD, 1GB of ram for $400 shipped. (i had to pay tax also!!!)
