    Hi All,

    Our organization was recently given a very good condition (almost mint) Mac Pro 3,1 for use within our offices. We've got several Macs as it is now, and I'm very interested in what this system would be worth (roughly, I know...)

    Wondering if I can get some of you knowledgeable Mac users out there to speculate on it... :D

    Processor: 2 x 2.8 GHz (8 cores)
    Memory: 8 GB (800 MHz FB-DIMM)
    GPU: NVIDIA GTX 285 (1 GB)
    Hard Drive: 320 GB (7200 RPM)
    OS: Snow Leopard

    Those are the basics. Again, would be interested in roughly what this thing might be worth if it went in a private sale. Would much rather use the money towards software purchases, supplies, etc. at the moment.

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    As a starting point, you can check Mac2Sell, eBay (including completed sales), or Amazon for prices of similar models, to get an idea of what you may be able to charge. Then adjust your price to account for condition, configuration, remaining AppleCare coverage (if any), etc.
