Mac people!

hey you mac folks out there...

Do any of you have knowledge of current prices for older used macs? These are the specs on one my neighbor has offered to me. Unfortunately he did the "make me an offer" thing and I have NO CLUE what something like this would go for!

Here's the specs on the Mac I'm looking to get rid of. It's a G4 AGP (Sawtooth model) dating back to 2000.

-1.2 GHz G4 processor (upgraded)
-960MB RAM
-60GB hard drive + 40GB hard drive
-12x DVD burner
-ATI Radeon 8500 AGP video card with 64MB VRAM
-2nd video card--I think it's an XClaim VR with a TV tuner that only works in OS9
-SCSI card that I haven't used in about 4 years
-OSX 10.3 installed


If any of you have any ideas of the price something like that should go for can ya please let me know?

Thank you!

I don't know shit, but I referred the link to this post to one of my Cinema Rex friends who's a Mac genius and now has his own Mac-consulting and repair business. He may throw in his two cents.

Here's the answer from my friend Z:

I checked out the post and here's my ballpark estimate:
on ebay, I think this computer would go for from $350 - $600. It's a pretty old tower, but it's been pretty significantly upgraded. It could even go for more! People pay top price for used computers on ebay.

This may help.

I think most people would look at that and say for $600 I can get a brand new mini with almost all of that and a warranty. Much like some of my toys, I think this one has faded into obsolescence.

A quick glance at eBay tells me that this model is selling at $400-$500 right now. If you're going to use it for graphics, 1.2 Ghz is pretty cramped.
