    A free PM G5.

    DP 1.8Ghz. 3GB RAM, 750GB+250GB HDs.
    All it had was visual damage, and didn't stand up straight. Has about a 3 degree tilt to it.

    Oh, and it came with a 20" Cinema Display.

    Given the price, I don't know how much of a bargain this would be, but here goes. I got my 17" Powerbook for about half price, and it was practically brand new. I was in CompUSA right after the switch to Intel/Macbooks. I was eyeballing the new Macbook, but I was on the fence about it. Their Apple guy said he had something I might be interested in checking out. It was a display model of a Powerbook. I was skeptical at first, since display models are usually abused. He got the box and pulled it out, and the thing looked brand new. He told me it had only been on display for 2-3 months before the new Intel models came out. They knocked 25% off the price. Well, they were also having some kind of "red tag" clearance sale where stuff with the red tag was 25% off. I jokingly asked if this Powerbook qualified for that sale. He asked his manager, who approved it. So, I basically wound up getting the 17" Powerbook in perfect condition for 50% off the list price. I love that machine, and still use it almost daily.

    I got a free iPod shuffle for sitting through a bogus sales presentation where they tried to get me to buy timeshares and whatnot (I was a junior in college at the time - like where on earth would I have the money to buy a timeshare when I can barely afford tuition?)

    I won a previous gen. iPod shuffle in a raffle a couple years ago. My dad also calls me up every so often with a G3 iMac or something that he found at a flea market for $5-10.
