    Apple is selling new single and duel 1.25 G4s on their site. Edu discount price is 1199.00 for the single. I am unsure of the regular price but I am sure that it is competative with what you can find on eBay and you get a warranty and all the programs to boot. And I am sure that after you buy a comp on eBay (or elsewhere) and upgrade it, you will be sitting at about what you can get one of these new ones for.

    Be very careful of craigslist. They do have deals but almost everything there is way overpriced. Do your research first. Check what models are going for what price on ebay (ebay is a good reference on what price people are buying it at) and also check everymac.com.

    It all comes down to how much you want to spend for the older tower plus upgrades versus buying a nice refurb from apple.com.

    Thats true... a lot of stuff are overpriced at Craigslist. But deals do exist there and you have to check it very often coz people will snap it up once they see a deal. However, one of the good advantage of craigslist is that you can check out the stuff first and negotiate/bargain the price later.

    eBay is a good indicator of the current market price but they can fluctuate faster than my blood pressure when I'm stuck on a traffic jam!
