    Person thought that they were getting a monitor since the picture shows it?
    Or liked the fact they were getting the software pre-installed :rolleyes:

    because they are getting illegal software?
    because they think the monitor is included
    because they think that it 2 500Mhz processers = 1Ghz.

    PlaceofDis hit it on the head. That, and possibly somebody got caught up in a bidding war and just wanted to win. It happens.

    who would actually buy a computer off ebay without seeing a pic of the actual computer. :confused:

    not something you'd see me doing.

    Yeah I don't really bid on auctions where they don't supply a picture of the actual machine.

    I would have paid like max $300 for that.

    also, it's important to remeber that 533 MHz PowerMacs and under were the old 4 stage pipeline G4, before they switched to 7 step.

    a dual 533 G4 will absolutely blow a 1 GHz G4 out of the water in basically every aspect of use, probably better performance than the low end mac mini as well. the dual 500 in that auction, is, despite the illogical reasoning of the seller, probably just about as good as a single 1 GHz G4.
