    I've got an old PowerMac MDD - Dual 867MHz PowerPC G4, 1.75 GB DDR SDRAM with 120 GB Hard-Drive space (2 original drives, 3rd is a 40GB WD Caviar). It also has the original Philips CD reader/writer (and DVD reader) with an additional fully capable Samsung CD/DVD reader/writer. The original NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 32mb graphic card is in it as well. I've got the original 15'' Apple Studio Display with it as well, which still works great.

    Would I be better off selling this piece by piece or should I throw the whole thing up on eBay? Anyone have any idea how much I might get for either?

    Thanks in advance!:apple:

    PS. wear and tear is minor to moderate

    Either way, you won't get much for it. You're better off just selling the thing whole; less hassle and you will receive more cash.

    I have a Macbook (black) bought in 2008 that I can barely sell for $300. Even then, it's questionable. With the release of the unibodies, nobody wants the old versions.

    You might want to sell the monitor separately. For the rest, just sell it as a piece and be done with it. The other poster is right, it won't fetch much these days.
