    Yes, A brand new, in-box Cube!
    It's a 450MHz model. They want $400. Is it really worth that much?

    Depends on how much someone is willing to pay for it. If someone buys it... then yes, it is worth $400 to them.

    I have one (in a box too). If you have the spare income, yes.

    Mine came with a 17" ADC LCD (also in box). Paid AUD$414

    If I really wanted one - I'd pay it. I've had a Cube before, so it's not all that interesting to me these days. But a machine that I desired that was new-in-box? Sure.

    I'm guessing it seems fair, considering most used examples are fetching $200 or so. Who knows, it just might explode in value eventually, but at the moment I don't think I'll plunk the dough for it ;p.

    I guess - new in sealed box (or maybe open box but never used, all other contents sealed).

    Its an esquisite time in history. Plastic issues where known but not dire.

    I always wanted one of these … that is until the Mac Mini debuted - bought that instead.

    Man I loved my cube when I had it. I'm half tempted to head down to this place and buy this as they are local.

    I wouldn't pay 400 though. Buy a cheap one and there are tons of upgrades.

    Probably worth it for $400 if i's BRAND NEW in a SEALED box.

    Yeah, maybe in 15 years if they wanted to save it to sell it later as a collectors item. But as old as it is, buying it for more in a sealed box so you can use it @ +250% the going rate of a used one is dumb.
