    I'm going to be selling my Mac mini so that I can afford a new iMac over the summer. The specs are:

    PowerPC G4 1.42GHz
    1GB RAM
    Radeon 9200
    Combo Drive
    80GB HD
    BenQ 17-inch LCD
    Microsoft Wireless Keyboard/Mouse Set
    2 Years of Best Buy Warranty Left
    Am I forgetting anything?

    How much do you think I could get for it?

    If you get $600 that is fair, but you might get less. They sell the new G4 Mini at Costco for $700 with 3 year warranty and apple wireless mouse and keyboard with no monitor and only 512 ram but with DL Superdrive.

    Do you have the boxes for everything?

    With boxes

    Mini $450-500
    Extra $40-50
    Monitor $100

    Try craiglist.

    Check ebay...

    Item 8808764917
    Sold for US $487.00

    List it on your local craiglist since it is free for $650 for the whole package see what happens. Before I brought the Mini from Costco I brought one on craiglist in Feb with the following...

    1.42/combo/512/80 /BT/ Airport
    ATI remote control
    USB apple keyboard
    Mircosoft wireless Mouse
    Wireless Router
    Brought in Jan 2006

    Dell LCD 17" + $100

    Notice after i brought it was Refurb and wanted a superdirve...and the Costco had the deal.

    Sold the Router for $40, Mini with keyboard and mouse for $500, kept the lcd and Remote. Told thenew owner it was Refurb, but they didnt care going to install it in a car.

    You should be able to get atleast $600... since you have the boxes. People would rather have AppleCare but Bestbuy warrany good i think if it breaks they will give you an Intel machine.
