    maybe its just me but dont you guys think it's outrageous how people think they can overcharge for mac equipment. i know mac retain there value really well but some things are just too much...
    ie:

    PowerMac G4/450DP MT 128/30gb/DVD/56K . . . . . . . . s 4 999.00

    from smalldog

    i knows it's a dp but come on its a 2 year old machine..... with only agp 2x and only 128 megs of ram... they could at least given it 256 for that price.

    iBook G3/600 12in 128/20gb/Combo . . . . . . . . . . . r 7 999.00

    now why is that the price was it a combo drive but 600mhz lower and smaller hd?

    used mac retairers are expecting to much and we are giving it to them.


    just a random thought... i have been picing macs and thought someplaces a bit strange on how they charge for old computers. it's like the ebay thing. buy a new mac sell it one ebay for more... strange i say...

    I'll bet that price is a mistake. Unless it has gold handles and racing strips.

    lol thats not 5000 and 7000 :p

    if you go to smalldog and look, the first number is the number in stock :p
    and 'R' means refurbished, and the 'S' means stock. Or so I believe. those prices are both $1000.
