To get this out of the way first and foremost since this is my first post, I'm not some sketchy internet drifter hellbent on "gettin' in ur wallet, and stealin' ur monies", my eBay account is h4ckintosh if you wish to look me up. I'm a starving college student that doesn't make alot and am in a financial rut. Now, to the computers...

The PowerMac G5 is a Dual Processor 2.5GHz with 1.5GB RAM and a 128MB Radeon XT 9600 (I think)- purchased about 4 years ago new. This computer is all fine and dandy, except that the coolant system leaked. I don't know whats wrong internally, it boots but sits at a white screen and I don't have the money to get it fixed. This was my primary machine I used for work and school. I dunno what to ask for, make an offer.

The other computer is an iBook G4 (original owner) 12" 800Mhz with 640MB of RAM, 60GB HDD, slight cosmetic wear on the outside with an anti-RIAA sticker on the one corner. Asking about $500.

I also have an iPod mini first gen. (green), has a scratched out message on the back, had an encounter with a toddler, its worn but works, asking $30.


I will be posting pictures of all said things later this evening. Gotta go
Oh, to contact me email [email protected]

Good luck on the sales. I think the iBook is a tad overpriced IMHO.

That iBook is about $250 overpriced. I will give you $250 for the iBook.

What range are you looking for to sell that G5? Not knowing the state of the damage makes it pretty difficult to take an estimate.

The G5's got possible mainboard and power supply issues aside from the cooling unit being cheesed, damage estimate appx. $1000. Asking $250-300. I'm calling Apple tomorrow one last time, just to vent some steam, I may be able to get influence and get it repaired, if not I'm selling it for scrap or hooking it up a blasting charge. ****in' waste of money.
