It's called eBay.Originally posted by MacAztec
Does anyone know the website where you can find the value of your mac? You enter in its properties, and it gives you an estimate of its worth. Anyone?
I don't know how they're getting these prices. Street value is lessOriginally posted by eyelikeart
so roughly my TiBook is worth $1700-$1900 with the specs listed on everymac.com...
what about it with a 30 gig hd? that's gotta be worth at least another $50-$75 right????
exactly....5 days left....anyone who knows ebay can attest that most bids don't take place till the last day or so....and if the price never goes anywhere...there's usually a reserve price...and in most cases the item won't sell...I'm not worried though...Originally posted by dukestreet
Check out ebay, here's an example
667MHz PowerPC G4, 512MB RAM, 30GB hard drive, 8X8X24 CD-RW/8X DVD-ROM, 56Kbps modem, 10/100/1000 Ethernet, Mac OS 9.2/OS X 10.1 and a 15.2" active-matrix display
5 days left and current high bid:
I disagree. Ebay is for people who like ebay. Its actually quite bad for getting deals often times. I remember when I was looking for a hard drive for my iMac, the one I wanted was going for about 200 bucks on ebay back then. I even tried to bid on it because I was under the impression ebay was where you got deals back then. I lost. And thank goodness. I found the same drive a few days later for nearly 100 dollars less with free shipping from staples. If you want good deals, shop around on the web. the stores listed on yahoo often have some really good prices for instance, and places like staples can be great with their coupon codes and free shipping. Ebay is a decent place to find hard to find items, and gets you decent deals on some things, but relying on it as a place to find bargains means you are probably overpaying most of the time.Originally posted by Hemingray
unfortunately; people go to eBay for deals, not "suggested value" prices.
My point is that its worth shopping around some and its possible to find much better deals than ebay on a lot of items, whether they be computers, electronics, or anything else. particularly clearence items at stores and bundled deals that include other things you want/need. Reliance on ebay for anything is not worth it. Its just one more outlet. Shop around.Originally posted by Hemingray
Yes, but Staples don't sell used G3's. We're talking reselling computers here.
