    I am looking to sell my Mac Pro and 23" Apple Display, but have no idea how much it is worth to put a price on it.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated?
    I am in the UK if that helps.

    Spec is:
    Mac Pro

    2 x 3Ghz Dual-Core Intel Xeon
    5GB 667 MHz DDR2 FB-DIMM

    2 x SONY DVD RW DW-D150A

    ATI Radeon X1900 XT
    512 MB VRAM

    HD1 250GB

    HD2 500GB

    Many thanks.

    if I had any cash (at all) I'd make you an offer, but i dont.

    Whenever I sell a mac i check ebay for comparabile ones and watch to find out what they sell for. Seems to be a good guage for me.

    eBay

    As the above poster said, check on eBay and similar sites to get an idea of what people are paying.

    You could also check www.mac2sell.com, but i've found that gives a value higher than people are paying on eBay.

    I would look at similar products, view a few items on ebay, see what they go for, then list it with a reserve price just under the average that they are going for so that you can ensure a good price.

    Many thanks for all your advice, it is much appreciated. I had a try on mac2sell.com, but they don't list dual cores or dual superdrives unfortunately. It has given me more of an idea though.

    I will keep looking on eBay for something similar.

    Thanks again.

    I wouldn't expect to get more than £1,400 and you are probably looking at less than that if only educated buyers are interested. Monitor is worth maybe £350-£400 without AppleCare.
