A few weeks back, the logic board in my Powermac died. I was without Applecare, and the board failed 1 week late of the year cutoff for me to be able to buy Applecare. I called up the local authorized repair center, and the board is $1079, plus tax, and installation. So that's about $1300-$1400 to get my machine fixed. BTW, I had to take this semester off from school because I have to have my mac (graphic design major) to do school work I don't see the point in spending that much on a g4 machine. SO..... I see powermac parts on EvilBay from time to time, and I was thinking - I couls "part out" everything thats good in my machine and try to raise money for a G5. I could sell: Both 1.25 Cpus Case Power Supply RAM (3 512 sticks) 80 gig HD Combo Drive video card How much should I ask for each of these things? And wouldn't is be better to sel this stuff individually than trying to sell a dead machine in need of a logic board? Thanks for reading, and any help is greatly apprecitaed. Im a poor college kid, and not having my Mac is seriously making things complicated here.
