    I've agreed to purchase a used 1.8 G5 20" iMac (Rev A), subject to inspection. What should I look out for? I know that it has one dead pixel. It seems to be a fantastic deal: $1150 for a 20", 1GB RAM, 160GB HD, bluetooth.

    I'm meeting the seller in person to pay/pick up. What tests should I run?

    That it ain't HOT!:D

    That it ain't BROKE!:D

    sorry- couldn't resist.

    See if he/she has the original documentation packing list/receipt so you can see what it shipped with and would know what, if anything has been added or changed?

    Hopefully others will be of more help.
