    Does anyone think $600 for the following is a far price?:

    -12" iBook
    -G3 processor 800 mHz
    -256 mb RAM
    -CD-R burner / DVD-player
    -original box + reinstall CDs
    -Apple optical mouse + Apple keyboard included
    -original owner / well-kept

    I'm trying to offload it, since I have a G5, plus a Powerbook.

    Not sure if this is the right forum, but I think that you're way off base with that asking price. The G3 is 3 generations old by now (G4 --> G5 --> Core).

    I would say a fair price would be $350 if it's in perfect condition.

    im really interested in buying an old g3 because basically i cant afford anything newer. i have a mac mini which i bought in october, and i can honestly say its one of the best things ive ever bought. i dont see me using windows unless needed.

    but anyway, id be really interested in your ibook. id pay around $400 for it. but there is one small problem, i live in the uk. what do u think? get back to me please

    You're asking way too much. I think $400 or less is more like it. That's a really old computer.

    That is way too high. I recently purchased a used iBook G3 800 mhz cd-rw/dvd with 386 mb of ram, all original discs, 90 day warranty for $350. $350-$400 is the highest you can realistically expect with a computer that old.
