I just wondered if you guys could give me an idea of around what my iMac would be worth.
I don't see an exact spec'ed one on the Apple refurb store or in ehMac's classifieds.
Anyway, it's a 17 inch iMac Intel Core Duo ( NOT core2duo) with 128 mb ATI card, 8x Superdrive, and when I ordered it from the Apple online store I had the hard drive upgraded to a 250 gig model, and the memory upgraded to 1 gig ( 1 x 1 gig stick).
It's almost 1 year old, but it has Applecare for the additional 2 years. It has been problem free since I bought it, and is in nice shape.
What do you think would be a reasonable value for it?
Thanks for any input you can offer.
The nearest currently available equivalent iMac is the Core 2 Duo at $1349 (the $1099 model has shared graphics, no SuperDrive, and less RAM). That being said, I would say your $1100 price point is pretty bang on, as it has the larger hard drive and still at least 2 years of coverage left on it. Despite having more specifications wise, it is nevertheless a pre-owned/pre-used unit, with wear and tear, regardless if it's still in great shape. Adjust your price accordingly from your $1100 estimate if it's missing its packaging, discs, manuals, or has/is scratched.

My iMac has the original packaging, discs, manuals, etc.
As far as condition, the worse I could say about it is there might be some slight scratching on the case, visible only if you were to turn the iMac at a certain angle to a light. Otherwise it's all in nice shape.
I think I'll try an ad in the local paper here at something like $1000 or $1100.
Recently bought an Imac (luving it) after researching and found this one on Craigslist for $900, owned by someone taking courses to become Mac tech - kept in pristine condition and luckily some upgrades were done (only two months left on warranty) I believe I could upgrade CPU later to core2dou to get from 32 to 64 bit - and no remote - )
