what's it worth?

so, I have this slightly older G4 Powerbook Alumin. 15" with 768 meg ram, bluetooth, airport, and an 80 gig hd, and I'm kinda wondering what it's worth,
I won't tell you what my mom paid a few years back, because most people here know how computers depreciate

I also have some ddr 3 ram, and I don't think it's worth much, but, again, I'm just checking, I remember how expensive ram USED to be "Oh, so you want 128 meg for your Macintosh, do you? that'll be 800 please"

Ah, but I'm dating myself aren't I?

"Ah where have you gone, wild eep?"

Hard to say without knowing all the processor details... you can check Mac2Sell, just be aware that their valuations are slightly high!

Could probably get between 500-700.

I'll give you $300 -- where can I pick it up?

Seriously, it's worth about $500 (I guessed on the CD-ROM)...

It's worth far more than $300. I recently sold a Mac mini 1.25Ghz G4, 512 RAM, 40GB, no bluetooth or airport for $260. I've seen the same mini in Apple resellers for 399.

This thing has a screen, better graphics, more ram, double the hard drive and bluetooth+airport.
