Today, I gave in to a sudden surge of desire for something to replace my beloved iMac G5 that recently died, and so went to Craigslist to see what local deal I might find. I located a very clean and fully functioning PowerMac G5 (A1047) with dual 2 GHz processors, 2GB of RAM (4 x 512MB of PC3200 RAM, with 4 empty slots), a 160GB HDD, with a Pioneer DVD-RW, and Airport Extreme. The deal also included an Apple wireless keyboard and mouse (with bluetooth adapter), both in good condition, although you couldn't pass them off as anything but used. There's also a very clean and fully functioning 17" Apple LCD studio monitor. The seller was asking $500 and, after much discussion, finally settled on $450 for the lot. What I'd like to know, is this a good deal, or would I have done better by taking a few days and doing some serious research? Also, could anyone suggest a good selling price for my first generation 17" iMac (#1989)? It is exceptionally clean and so perfect for rebuilding. When it is up and running, the screen image is as good as it gets. It does have an Airport Extreme card, but I need to take the hard drive as it still contains all my old files. I see people selling these for rebuilds or parting out, but the prices seem all over the place, and I like to charge the most reasonable price possible.
