    Ok,I ordered the iMac 17" refurbished and it came with 250GB HDD?Weird,I'm pretty sure I clicked on 160GB HDD version one....I even checked the price I was charged and it was 1,099???oh well,anyways,now I want to sell my PC but does anyone know how much I would get for:
    AMD Athlon 64 Bit 3400+
    1GB RAM
    200GB Hard Drive
    Has a DVD Burner in the top and a CD Drive in the bottom
    I think it's a 8-1 reader
    6 USB Slots
    Nvidia GeForce FX 5200
    15" Monitor
    2 speakers
    1 keyboard
    1 Mouse
    I'll even toss in a Lexmark printer....

    How much would I get?
    Thanks....also,my friend also wants a Windows PC but his dad gave him a Powerbook G5....He asked me if I would be willing to trade for it....Would it be worth trading it?I'll check the specs on the G5 around this weekend....thanks again!

    OK, a serious answer

    (but rly, when you serve up juicy openings like that, you gotta expect the jokes)

    The AMD machine isn't bad for a general office/email machine. The 15" monitor is probably a liability though. You could get maybe $250, $300 for the PC if you threw in the monitor and/or printer for free. New PCs with Semprons or Celerons and warranty are selling for $299 - $399

    Pretty darned expensive I would say since it would be a custom job.

    Apple never did produce a PowerBook G5. They did make a PowerMac G5 tower.

    You would have to give us specs of the PB. There were a lot of PB G4s...
