I'm looking for an iMac G4, 700 MHz or better (if they even made any slower than 700 MHz, I'm not sure they did).

15" screen okay. Of course, 17" is better.

I've been poking around on eBay and there are a few that seem to be from reputable people.

Just to make sure I'm exploring all avenues, are there some specific used Mac resellers that are worth pursuing?

And of course, if anyone has an iMac G4 that they're looking to sell, I'd love to hear about it.


Thanks.

I think that the best G4 iMac is with 17inch screen. Not 20incher cuz the video card is pretty slow to play games at 1680x1050 (native)

But why do you want G4? Get lowend (1.6GHz) rev A 17 inch G5, if you're concerned abou the price, it would last you much longer

Well if you don't mind paying a bit more for something faster than 700Mhz there is one for sale refurbished from apple.com

Its an iMac G4 1.25GHz/ 256MB/ 80GB/ SuperDrive/ E/ 56K/ 17-inch - Apple Certified for $1,099.00 Plus it is saying there is free shipping which is always a plus.

I bought my 20" from there and have nothing but praise for the service and quality.

I don't know why you wouldn't :D They are just so much nicer looking than the new G5's in my opinion. Course I didn't need some top of the line machine though myself.

15" iMac G4
800MHz
512MB RAM
60GB HD
Combo
Keyboard, Mouse, Pro Speakers...
-Originally bought reconditioned-

This is in no way definite, but if your offer is acceptable to me, I can talk to my dad to see if he'll let me :p

I've had my iMac for 2 days so far and I wouldn't trade it for anything. I was a little tentative about the new iMac designs, but once you are sitting in front of it, it feels great. The refurbished iMac G5's at the Apple site are just too good of a deal to pass. You will thank yourself later as the computer will last a much longer time and not be outdated when you buy it.

Re: Craigslist?

Hello all,

I have not heard of Craigslist until I saw it posted in this thread and, since I am in the market for a Mac, I took a loko at it. There is a nice mac selling in my area, however, since I have not heard of Craigslist I was wondering if anyone has bought something through this system/service? It does not seem to have am eBay type of rating system, thus I do not see a way to try and verify a seller before one buys from them. Anyone have any experience with Craigslist they can share?

Thanks!

It's part owned by eBay.

The idea is that you meet the seller in person and inspect the goods and see that it's ok before swapping the money over...
