    Interesting read on how old Macs retain their resale value...

    That was a great read. I can't even imagine running Vista, let alone XP, on a 6-year-old Dell laptop.

    Even the cooler 68k and early PPC machines still sell for more than you would expect.

    I sold my Rev.A 1.6HGz 17" G5 iMac late last year for £450. Quite mad, really. When I come to sell my 24" iMac and 1Ghz TiBook later this year, I hope to get quite a lot back too.

    That 6-year-old Dell probably shipped with XP on it, but I would hate to run Vista on one.

    Wow, XP was out that long ago? I got my first computer (that was really my own) in early 2003. Before that my aunt gave me her old computer with Windows 98.

    I think the big reason for this is asthetics. I still want a G4 Imac and will probaly get one eventually cause I think they look cool.
