    I came across a listing of someone selling a like new G5 Powermac dual 2.5 Ghz, 512 mb RAM, 160 GB HD, plus a 17 inch apple display, and midi keyboard. They want $1400 for all of it. I know this is a good deal, but I'm not sure how good. Would it be worth buying just to sell it? I think I might be able to get over $2000 for it. Anybody have any advice?

    Thanks

    Unless its a trusted source, its probably too good to be true.

    You say "listing" so I'm presuming you're looking on eBay, in which case it is too good to be true and I would recommend against buying it. Even positive feedbacks can be fixed, so don't trust that either.

    is that 1400 dollar price a buy it now price, or is it a bidding price? If it's buy it now, somebody would have jumped on it immediately...

    it is probably a fake sell on ebay, I see sales like this all the time. I wish they were real. :mad: Funny how they all trace back to some guy in Bulgeria.
