I agree.
that said, I don't believe I could have got any more than I did for what i had.
But mine was a 2.4..yours being a 2.8 was much newer.
Mine was late 208
I felt fine getting w hat I did for this one, but 850 I believe was too low but I didn't know about that site before and now can see where people are getting ridiculously low prices from when they low ball you.

Yep. It put my G5 2.0 tower at $400, at a point where I sold it for a couple hundred more easily.

Mac2Sell places the 12" G4 1.5 PB value at $150, definitely on the low side. Something is always worth...what someone is willing to pay for it. Therefore, classifieds can be good indicators of value. The internet is a pretty good leveler of value-if Apple has a piece of equipment from the refurb. store with full warranty, you'd better price your "equivalent" below their price (tax notwithstanding). Of course, there's always P.T. Barnum...

The fool is the one who pays you the kind of prices you're advocating. Lucky for you there are a lot of foolish people out there.

I just sold an iMac from 2006. The page said $600. I asked $900......I got a few offers for $700 but I wasnt interested.

I had one offer at $800
another one at $900
I at first went with the $900 offer but something happened the night she was going to come by, by which point i had already said yes to the $800.....I thought about putting him off for one night in order to deal again with the $900 person but know from experience, that you run a big risk doing that..........had i done so and at the last minute she had kicked out, although i don't think she would have, I could have lost the $800 person as well

So I ended up going with the $800..........but could have got $900 had i wanted to wait and take the risk that both of them may have fallen out.


I felt $800 was fine.........would have preferred the $900 but when you get overly greedy it can blow up in your face


The point being, both prices were $200 and $300 more than that page suggested. In future I would always ask $300 above and be happy for $200

also as I said above.......it doesnt take into consideration if you have apple care or not, which certainly adds to a price OR whether or not you have the time to get one-----too many variables

but judging from some of the offers i get in when i sell the ones I have tells me that people ARE using those sites to offer their lower quotes
