    Hello everyone. Im new to the forum and am trying to figure out the value of a mac pro. I was told it was purchased for $6400, but I don't know much about these. Here are the specs on it. What would be a fair price? Thank you

    AirPort Extreme Card (Wi-Fi)

    16x SuperDrive

    2 - 2.8GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon

    4 - 1TB 7200-rpm Serial ATA

    Mac Pro RAID Card

    4 GB Ram

    2 - ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT 256 MB

    Apple Keyboard

    Apple Care Protection Plan

    Mac OSX Server v 10.5

    My guess this configuration is worth around 3000 USD., give or take a couple hundred. This is based on the same model (but with fewer HDs. less RAM and nor RAID card) selling at the Apple refurb store for $2399.

    $3,000 - $3,500 depending if the extras are of any value to you. As a seller I'd be looking for $3,500 - $4,000 for it.

    Most of the extras are outdated and the RAM is sub average. Apple RAID card is junk as is the X2600. 1 TB drives are superseded by 2 TB drives. I would not pay more than 2500 for the thing. The 2008 octad will be two generations behind in a couple of months. The vender certainly has put his money into the wrong items.

    Well and 08 refurb is 2400$, and that computer is basically the stock one + more cheap harddrives.

    It's still a pretty good computer even if its two gen old ;)

    At 2500 it would be good value for money, at 3000+ I would give it a pass and wait until 5,1 hits the market.
