    Man I wish prices had dropped this low when I bought my dual core 2.3 G5 back in 2009. I bought my 2.3 for $380, and it came with iLife 08 and Leopard install discs. Even so, this is a pretty low price!

    I checked the link you supplied and it is for a dual CPU 2.5 not a quad.
    Did you maybe submit the wrong link?

    That was probably acceptable for the quad, but $250 is way too much for that piece of garbage. Those things had one of the most horrendous failure rates, and the cooling system is just a ticking time bomb.

    I could agree more.
