    I'm looking to buy a Power Mac to use as a file server. What would you expect to pay for a machine with the following specs? I'm in the UK...

    PowerMac G4 QS
    733MHz
    512MB Ram
    60GB Hard Drive
    OSX Tiger
    Has a CD Drive (not sure if it's dvd) but the seller said it's not lined up correctly with the case so may not work

    Thanks

    Less than $200. Ebay's a good place to gauge it.

    Thanks. Looking on ebay (which is where I got the specs from), the above machine is on sale for £130 shipped. It's slightly more than I hoped to pay for a machine to use just as a server but I'm trying to negotiate to around £115 shipped.

    Would this be a good price?
