    Hi, all.

    I have a working PowerMac 7500/100 with the original 601e chip and 1GB HD that's been collecting dust for about 8 years now and I'm curious as to what's a good asking price for it if I were to put it up on the local Craig's List? Is there some publication that lists such information or someplace where I can get it appraised?

    BTW, I added a USB 1.0 card to one of the 3 rear PCI slots a few years ago and IIRC added 128MB of RAM if that effects the value.

    If you have the space, I'd keep it.

    But then I keep everything Apple. :eek:

    It's value may increase over several years, since everybody thinks they are worthless right now and throw them away. In ten years, finding one with the original 100Mhz CPU card could be a rare thing.

    Right now, it's value would be quite low. $50 tops, perhaps - if at all. :(

    $5 max, considering you can pick up old B&W G3's for next to nothing it's pretty worthless.

    You'd be lucky to get $20 for it. I don't see it as ever having much value.

    I'd list it for free - the value to you is that someone is coming to pick it up, and you don't have to drive to the recycler.

    :(

    Worthless, then. Check. Oh well, at least I can still play Tie Fighter on it. :rolleyes:

    Don't feel bad - a 7500 got me through college, and I loved it. :) But these days it's too old to have much value, but not unique enough to be collectible either.

    This wasn't ever a particularly desirable computer. It probably won't be worth as much as some other classic Macs, even several years from now.

    These can still be fun for old games or just to use as a creative machine.

    Actually, I have to disagree. It had the video in/out and DAV slot and could be upgraded to a 604e CPU (and a G3 later). So on a budget, compared to an 8500 which were a pain to put RAM into, it was very desirable at the time.

    I do agree that it's not as cute looking as an all-in-one Mac so it's value as a collectible is questionable. But you'd be hard pressed to find the original CPU card these days.

    I still have one with a 604e 250Mhz running a bank of 6 SCSI drives in a tower case. Well, it hasn't been turned on in a few years. :(
