    I am thinking of selling my Rev. B (June 2004) Dual 2.0 G5 tower. It is exactly two years old and is in absolutely mint condition - well taken care of, not so much as a scratch, and completely problem-free (so far - touch wood) Could someone tell me about what a fair price would be to ask, or how much I can expect to get for it?

    It has a few upgrades; following are the specs:

    Dual G5 2.0GHz
    2 internal hard drives (each one 160GB)
    2.5GB factory quality RAM
    Graphics card factory upgraded to Radeon 9600 XT (128MB)
    I still have everything that it shipped with, including the keyboard/mouse (also in excellent condition), all cables and manuals, and the box.

    Please note that I am not posting this for sale here - just asking for advice in case I do decide to sell it.

    Thanks for any help! :)

    Easiest way to get a general estimate is to do a search on eBay for similar machines, look at "Completed Auctions" in the options section, then see what similar machines actually sold for (remember to ignore overpriced ones that didn't sell).

    That system isn't perfect, but it'll give you a pretty good idea of what the going rate is right now.
