    Yes, good deal. A working MDD PSU is worth the price they're asking for the whole machine.

    OS is only worth something if it comes with genuine install DVD.
    Anyway, deal is good, even without above.

    The OS isn't really that big of a deal for me. I already have 10.3 - 10.9 thanks to the Mac Developer Program.

    But if you buy a computer without it, it's an extra expense. I see that he clarified that he has all OSes, but if he were someone that was just trying out the computer, he may have wanted to just get one with an OS so that he didn't have to stomach the additional price of buy the disk.

    That's a great deal.

    I'm really glad there aren't any deals like that on my local Craigslist because I'm pretty sure my wife will kill me if I bring another orphaned Powermac home. :D

    Nothing about the ad seems suspicious. It's a brick and mortar store (the number given is for the Dundalk location). I think most of the scammers have moved on to MBPs and MBAs. Scammers, for whatever reason, appear to have abandoned the highly lucrative PowerPC market.

    It's a good deal, but not "too good to be true". I picked up a dual 1.25 MDD for $75 from Craig's List a while back. I picked up another "non-working" model for $40 (It actually worked fine--Just needed a HD).

    Looks like a great deal. Rarely see any around that price point and I've been looking for a year or so.

    Go get it and let us know how it all worked out!

    I found my dual 1.25 with 2gb of ram at a garage sale for 15$. Had OS 9 installed which I wiped and put leopard on. Was too good to pass up however I would pay 50 for a dual 1.0 any day.
