    I have three identical Intel Core Duo 2 GHz 20" iMacs each with 2 GB of RAM which I bought at the same time about 1.5 years ago... I plan to sell one, but I don't know which of the three I should sell... they all look and run just great... so here's the probable dumb question.... is there any way of determining which one has the most wear on it? What would be a reasonable selling price today?

    The 2.16GHz 20" iMac is $1099 on the Apple (US) refurb store so that probably sets an upper limit on it. Your extra RAM helps the price. So would Applecare if you have it (since it's transfeable I believe).

    I don't know how to tell which have more wear though.

    Good luck - Greg

    A stone's throw from the White House.
    I think there's a code in Terminal which will tell you how many hours/minutes the computer has on it, but I can't think of it right now.
