    That seems pretty reasonable for the amount of RAM installed.

    Try and knock it down to $200 if you can because although the RAM is really good, the 10gb hard drive is pitiful. I am a bit surprised that Tiger is installed, hopefully it runs smoothly enough. Beware though of the infamous G3 logic board problems. I'm no expert but do a quick google search before you buy it.

    Thanks for the replies guys. I knocked him down to $215, and tiger wasnt running all that great so i decided to install Ubuntu 8.04.
