    Downsizing, needing to sell but not desperate yet.

    Is that a fair price?

    I thought $5000 was a fair price?

    $5k is kind of high, considering that not 4 months ago that machine was being sold new in the $2200 ballpark- I know because I bought one; BB and Amazon were in a price war clearing stock. . $5k would be less or about what I had in it were I to build it to your specs which is mainly the cost of the memory. the 4x256SSD won't be appealing to a lot of folks.

    Might be a good place to start, but expect to come down now that the new ones are out. If I had to venture one my guess is it'll sell closer to the $4k mark at best with $3500 not surprising me.

    No it definitely is not.

    $5k is more than a fair price considering what you're including. However, most people (even those in the market for a MP) will probably not want/need the second display.

    And if I had the money, I would absolutely buy it. Sadly, I'm broke and can only afford PPC Macs at the moment.

    I agree with this if the displays are not included. But the displays and the original boxes plus accessories makes the $5k estimate pretty accurate and reasonable.

    I think 5k would be reasonable. 2 displays for a little less than 1k each. And the machine it self worths a little more than 3k. The problem is, it's too much for normal users, from the price to the size to the power of this machine.
