My sister's looking at getting a G5 for music recording. I told her the iMac is perfect, but for some reason she's looking at the DP G5s now. She wants to use a sustain pedel, and thinks she needs major power for it..

Anyway, this machine has DP 2.0Ghz G5, 2GB ram, 160GB hdd, 128MB vram and a combo drive. He's asking $2500 obo, but has 'lowered' it to $2300 for her.

I'm thinking since the newest ones are dual-core, come with superdrive, etc for $2400 new, that this machine isn't worth what he's asking..

Anyway, what do you guys think?

$2300 ain't bad. Its got 2GB RAM remember. A new dual-core would run you close to $2800 after tax (with 512MB RAM, blah)

$2300 isn't bad, but it's not all that great either. But then the 2GB of RAM does make it tempting.

not 1 cent more than $ 2100.
But that's an opinion, of course. I'll get The Imac with 2 gigs of Ram, Almost as fast as that dual.

2000!

This is supposed to be _used_ equipement. The RAM is nice, but the combo drive is a drag.

You could always replace the combo with a dvdrw. I think it was NCIX that had the new Pioneer model on sale for $69.
"69 dude!!!"
