    I guess that's cheap but what good is it to collect computers anyway?

    I'd buy one if the guy didn't live in PA. That's too far away for a local pickup.

    wow thats crazy. you have to wonder how many unopened Macs are floating around old or new systems in storage or just waiting to be used cause the buyer got to many of them.

    i don't know if i would spend that much on those, but to a collector something like that is hard to pass up, since they are unused and all

    I like how he specified NO SCAMS in his ad.
    As if that'll stop them.
    :p

    Bilking a guy out of new Performas would be a pretty ratty thing to do :rolleyes: Something tells me he'll be okay.

    I'm interested in these, but not $275 interested.

    He lowered the price to $175 but it's still expensive.

    I don't think it's worth more than $20-50. And that's just for the retro box, the new computer smell, and cool rainbow apple stickers.
