    He's not ready to let it go/ he has no idea what the market price of his comp is..

    considering the fact that you can pick up a used mac mini for how much he wants... i'd go for that instead..

    A Power Mac G4 Cube of those specs is probably worth ~$200-$300. :)

    don't give him a dime over 250 for it. I'd say quote him 200.

    Ditto. Quote him $200. Go up to $250 max. If he says no way, then he doesn't know how much Cubes are going for. Check ebay for an idea.

    Nothing in the way of RAM, CPU upgrade or graphics upgrade. Power supply and speakers don't cut it for a cube. $150 max. You can get a better deal for $200-300.

    Sometimes, people value their mac way too much.

    No screen? buggerall HDD & RAM?

    200 sounds good.

    What's that even supposed to mean? The power supply works fine, and the Cube speakers are excellent. If you wanted to sink a fairly good deal of money into it, you can upgrade Cubes to fairly modern specifications (1.8 GHz G4, Radeon 9800, 1.5 GB RAM is a fairly common build).

    People don't buy a G4 Cube for their value on paper; People buy G4 Cubes because they are truly beautiful machines. I've had almost every line of Mac used fairly prominently in the living room of my house over the past several years, and none has ever impressed anyone visually quite like the Cube does.

    Reality distortion field :D
    I know I wouldn't sell my iBook for less than $600.
    About this cube, well the HD stinks and hmm RAM is okay for an old comp, so I'd say about $200 [Australian].
    That's much less than everyone else here says, but really, it's 450 mhz. I don't care how pretty it is.

    He's not saying that neither product works. He's saying that the speakers aren't some kind of awesome accessory that should really lure anyone into buying the Cube.

    I'd give him $200 max. Offer him $250 if you really want a Cube. My suggestion of $200 max is my limit, although frankly, I'd aim for $150.

    It's a nice looking machine, though.
