    Hello - Looking for advice for where and how much to sell my 20th Anniversary Mac. The computer and accessory boxes are still sealed/unopened, the keyboard and Bose speaker boxes have been opened but never taken out so all plastic is still on.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thank you

    For the 'where?' to sell, I guess Craigslist or TheBay. I see there's one similar to your's on TheBay, suggest you follow that auction to get a feel for price.
    From previous posts here, you may have noted that I have one, albeit less original packaging.
    An interesting machine for any collection, but if I'm honest I must say that it doesn't excite me anywhere near as much as my 20" Imac G4 which is in regular use as a Juke box and also web use with the latest TFFox.

    I would say first, post some pictures with the date hand written on a piece of paper. That convinces people you actually have the goods.

    Those things sold for a lot of money back in the day. You could probably list it for double the price on eBay pretty easy.

    eBay. Or build up your post count and post in the Marketplace here. Or at the Vintage Computer Forums: http://www.vcfed.org/forum/forum.php

    As Jyby said, LOTS of pictures, with the current date and your username (on each site you choose to sell on,) will help.

    There's a very persistent scammer supposedly selling a sealed TAM on eBay. They repeatedly relist it under different accounts even after eBay pulls the auction down. They say in the auction description that to buy it you should not bid on the auction, but rather email them outside eBay. That's obviously a big red flag.

    Anyway, if you see that auction, know that it's not legitimate and you're wasting your time following it.

    My gut feeling is that you should get somewhere from $1200-$1800 for a sealed TAM.

    If it’s factory sealed, the last most recent examples have sold north of $3k. Mint and complete, $1k and up.

    Two recent factory sealed TAMs:
