    PowerMac G4 533MHz DP $125 vs. PowerMac G5 1.8GHz DP $350
    I am looking to get my first used Mac. Thoughts on what is the better purchase for the price? The G4 comes with a 15" monitor, 512MB RAM, 40 GB, Airport, Leopard, mouse, keyboard, speakers. G5 comes with Dual 1.8GHz DP, 2 x 160GB, 3GB Memory, 17" monitor, Leopard, mouse, keyboard.

    Both are overpriced. The 533 G4 is only worth around $40...the G5 is worth about $200-$250.

    You didn't say if the monitors are CRT or LCD...if LCD, that would add value to each deal.

    I agree. Both are very overpriced, and at that price I doubt the seller really knows what they have. I'd keep looking for a better deal.
