    so cal
    All of that together, i think that is a great price. You might even be able to add 300 or so more bucks to it.

    btw, i would be extremely interested in knowing how much you would be willing to sell the g5 compy for. :eek:

    Suggestion: make it clear when you are advertising it that the Microsoft Office package comes with the original CD's and serial number and a transfer of license.

    If it does not, then it should not be offered with the machine.

    Sell them individually, you'll get more than if you bundled them all together.

    As for selling on eBay, make sure you list the item so the auction end time and date falls on a Sunday evening. That's the time most bidders will be on eBay. Also, you may want to take plenty of pictures of your items as I have found you can get the best bidding for items if they have large, clear pictures of your products. I would set a low reserve price so that your bid numbers are high.
