I am not using my Mac Pro anymore really. I am on the computer at work all day doing my job and dont feel the desire to be on my computer when i get home. I only spend about 2 hours a week on it, mostly doing bills. I would like to sell it but I am not sure what it is worth.

Here is what is in it:

Dual 2.66's
3 GB memory (2 512's and 2 1 GB's)
ATI x1900XT
Standard 250GB drive + 300 GB Maxtor
New Apple Keyboard
19" Syncmaster LCD
Klipsch Promedia 2.1 (has a bad connector but still work)


What is it worth?

then you should edit your original post since illegally distributing preinstalled copies of software is a huge no-no on this forum.
I don't think he's doing anything wrong, he's not providing the software, in fact he's not even officially soliciting it for sale, all he's done thus far is ask what the price would be.

Anyway, I'm not certain what it'd be, but I can assure you it'll go down a good percentage after they update the mac pro.

Thats why I want to sell it now. Is $2800 a good price assuming I am not solicitating any extra software?

go read the forum rules.
I did, nothing in there that pertains to this situation.

Anyway, more on topic, $2800 doesn't seem like too bad, any idea what all the stuff (minus software if you can't legally include it) cost you? From just quickly looking at the apple store it seems a new one, plus monitor would cost in the neighborhood of 3500-3800, but thats upgrading everything using the apple store.

In euro monies that's €1,935, I'd buy it from you in a heartbeat if you lived in Ireland (so I could see it running).

What are you upgrading to?

Ha ha. Im downgrading. I dont use the computer anymore for development (which is what I used it for in the past). I do that at work now and dont come home and sit at the computer. I will probably pick up a used macbook or macbook pro because I woul rather have the mobility over processing power.

I would assume you need a computer at home any ways, correct?
Nothing you buy cheeper would compare.
You never know down the road if it'll be needed again.
But for selling it, if you hold out you'll get what you want for it.
If you want it gone, shave a $100 or 2 off it and it'll be gone.

Dare I ask what you'll replace it with?
Later

Unless it was wireless or one of the new keyboards. He really didn't specify.


I just sold mine in my signature (not including display) for $7000 NZD, around $5000 USD.
Lets keep in mind the Mac Pro in New Zealand starts at $4699 NZD, which is $3581 USD, compared to $2499 from the US Apple store. Don't think you're going to sell your machine for $5,000 USD here. Not really sure why you sold it anyway, as I have always enjoyed your Mac Pro related posts on your blog.
