    Came across a 20" Imac with Snow Leopard, upgraded to 4GB/250GB Hard Drive with a Core2Duo. My question is this, is this a fair price for this machine, and I know this thread may be chewed up, but I am very hesitant.

    I have a suggestion:

    Tell us what the price is. Just a thought, you know.

    What processor speed?

    $600 sounds a bit high even for a 2.66 GHz--I'm not sure I'd buy one for more than $450 or so, and proportionately less for earlier processors.

    The machine is the aluminum body. Apple Imac Intel Core2Duo 2.0 ghz.

    Thank you all for the help thus far!

    Best advice is to check out eBay and follow some auctions for a day or two. Track a few and find out what the final selling prices are...

    Keep in mind, prices shoot up the last few hours of auctions.

    Also, refurb current iMacs are in the 1000-1100 range with 4 processors and better graphics cards, along with higher resolution screens.

    I probably wouldn't consider more than $500 for that model.

    Wow. I personally wouldn't go above $350 for a 2.0 GHz aluminum. $600 sounds . . . criminal. (Just kidding, but that's WAY too high.)
