Aside from checking classifieds, we can do simple subtraction:

$1199 for Refurbished iMac 20-inch 2.16GHz Intel Core 2 Duo SuperDrive through Apple Store today:
Feature Value Comparison:
20-inch widescreen display = Same
2.16GHz Intel Core 2 Duo = minus $300 (this maybe debatable as some value the G5 more because of older native apps). To me, it's about right, slower and older chipset versus the C2D. Also no ability to load Windows.
1GB memory = plus $100 value for 1.5GB more memory
250GB hard drive = Same
8x SuperDrive (DVD+R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW) = Same
ATI Radeon X1600 with 128MB GDDR3 memory = minus $50 for the older Radeon X600xt
Built-in iSight camera = Same
AppleCare = Same as refurb come with 1-year as well.
Wireless Keyboard and Mouse plus iSkin cover = just extra's to entice the buyer

So that comes out to 1199 - 300 + 100 -50 = $949.00 what I would be asking.

Depending on the rush or need to get rid of this unit - you may settle for less.

$850-950 sounds about right to me, as the G5s are getting a bit long in the tooth. I have a G5 2.0 at work, and it's starting to feel slower and slower every day ;)
