You can blame your price on why you have not sold the MDD. They're the most unreliable G4 tower and go for under $100 on CL with better specs.

MDD's were the most unreliable G4 tower?! WAT?

I had a MDD dual 867MHz for well over 5+ years. That thing was a friggin' tank!

Good luck with your sale, Chimpur!

So one that lived for 5-6 years makes them reliable? Are you really that short sighted?

I have been a Mac tech since the early 90's, the MDD was the G4 tower we saw most, as it was at every Apple certified repair shop.

Anything over a 1% failure rate is very bad. The MDD's were as high as 11% in 2004 when they were still supported. That number would be far higher now.

Still much better than any G5 tower though. The first gen dual 2.0 GHz had a failure rate of almost 30%. Seriously.

Reliable is 10+ years. Not everyone follows the mindless Mac OS and Windows constant upgrade cycle. I own 5x G4 towers. 4x Sawtooth and 1x Gigabit. The gigabit tower is the newest and it was manufactured in the summer of 2000. That is reliability. They will even outlive almost every current modern machine.

Edit: I forgot to add that all the G4's before the MDD (the MDD was the last G4 tower) are extremely reliable. The final revision of the Sawtooth (aka AGP Graphics aka the most reliable Mac ever made) had a failure rate of 0.7%. In fact, every tower from the 8600 up to the Quicksilver is the most reliable Apple hardware ever. So any PowerMac made between 1996 and 2001, and the early 2002 Quicksilvers.

Almost every PM8600/9600, PMG3, and pre MDD PMG4 still lives today.
