    I would accept £500 for that. I bought a 17" Intel iMac for £600 a while back.

    It seems a little high, you can get a brand new 17" Intel Core-2 Duo iMac for £679 with 512MB RAM, 160GB HD. You can upgrade it to 1GB RAM for £729, and it'll be a much better investment.

    EDIT: Sorry you're selling, the buyer is getting ripped off, it's a great price.

    Since I'm not too savvy on iMac re-sale value's, don't trust my word over a more enlightened persons. I personally, looking at it from the spec view, wouldn't pay that much for a used computer. I just sold a 2GHz, 256MB, 80GB computer and was only able to get $350 (about 228 Euro) for it. I'm sure Apple's elegant design will boost that just a bit, but I'm not sure THAT much...

    P.s. I'm not sure if my unit conversion is right. But still...

    you'd be surprised, a Powermac G4 Cube could go for £300($585,445 Euros) easy and it's over 6 years old

    Ahhh - sorry. I misunderstood too. In which case - £500 is a bit steep.

    mind you it is the most beautiful computer ever made
    yeah i think it's too much, sure it's nice but you can't upgrade the processor, unlike the cube, in fact i think i'm in love with that computer
