    I wouldn't pay over $300. If you gave some actual specs that amount may change.

    depends on the specs, obviously. but still, i wouldn't pay over $250. even for that price, it would need to be high-spec.

    But I mean, another $250 would get you a low-end current gen which would be more worth doing than wasting money on a PPC. Unless you absolutely need it or on a tight budget.

    100$ is OK. As Krafty said, if you add little more, you can get current gen

    Most people are advised not to bother with the Core Solo Mini, let alone a PPC version.

    Save your $100 toward your next machine.

    if u want to collect a mac, get a g4 cube. they are a lot more rare and stand out more than a mini. everybody knows about the mini but not a lot know about the cube.

    In that case a G4 cube or iMac G4 is the best Macs to own as a collection. IMO
