    I have a 1997 PowerMac G3 Beige Desktop 'Outrigger' that I am probably looking to sell as it (and everything that goes with it) is taking up a lot of room.

    It has a 233MHz G3 Processor and 64Mb RAM (this was a BTO factory upgrade)

    I also have an Apple Laserwriter 4/60ps and a Global Village 56.6kbps modem which were bundled with it.

    It is running Mac OS 8.0 which has been installed since new - no upgrades whatsoever.

    The machine has an early version of Internet Explorer, ClarisWorks and Photoshop 3.0 pre-installed.

    It is in very good condition as it was hardly used, sadly.

    How much would you say it is worth?

    Best case escenarios....

    with hardware that old is a collector or parts needed user (for collecting purposes o some odd use). In these escenarios, good care of the equipment and no cosmetic issue is a must. Me, if put in the position of buying the lot as a collectible or parts, no will pay more than $150-200. Can get more value as collectible if complete (keyboard, mouse and so on)or better yet, original packaging still around (hard, I know...!)

    Other than that, putting the computer on sale for use, I not see you getting more than $ 50, as Giuly as said.
