    That's a fair (as in good value) price. Check to see if it has AppleCare if so that is valuable too. Finally any software he is including MUST repeat MUST include the original media. If he can't produce the original media walk away, BTW that also includes the OS X Install discs that came with the machine.

    I wouldn't say to automatically walk away, but to reduce the price you're willing to pay accordingly.

    there is no reason to walk away if it doesn't include the original media. Maybe it was discarded with packaging, maybe it was lost sometime during it's life (they could have moved at some point, etc).

    It could be used as leverage to lower the price of the computer, or a retail copy of 10.5/10.6 and iLife could be used as an equivalent (~$100 together).

    Furthermore no apple discs is ok. The machine is still licensed to run osx.

    I have a similar machine but with 4gb ram. if someone offers $975 I'd be tickled to death.

    I'm just wondering since I can get a 21" for a little more would that be a better option? I don't really need any of the software. Also figure 4 GB of memory and 500GB HD would be plenty for my use.

    What GPU does the 24" have? That's critical for me.

    Cheers,
