How big is the HD? How much RAM does it have? Any other upgrades?

$1140 for a 400MHz CPU, 10GB HD, DVD, Rage 128, and 64MB RAM?

Hey can I sell you mine?

I think a more reasonable price would be about $900. I have one too and just don't think it's worth that much. Unless it has good upgrades (I have an extra 80GB HD, 512MB RAM, Voodoo 2 and an extra Ethernet card and I would sell it for $1200 without hesitation).

the HD is 10 GB. it has 448 MB RAM and a second graphic-card. so i think the price is okay?

To be fair

I saw some places selling the BRAND NEW, never opened 533Mhz Digital Audio G4 for $1800 CDN. This is around $1150 US.

So your price maybe a bit too much....to the US standard.....extra RAM and video card don't worth much when they are second hand...however since you live in Europe it should be okay if you sell it locally......

I have the same machine just different specs
PowerMac G4/400 AGP
640 MB RAM
20 GB 7200 RPM Hard Drive
60 GB 5400 RPM hard Drive
ATI radeon 32 MB DDR RAM
Orange Micro Grappler SCSI Card
Creative Soundblaster Card
ATI Xclaim VR 128 16 MB VRAM
ZIP drive
DVD-ROM Drive
Airport card

If I were to sell mine I would likely want about 1300-1400.

So with your specs I would say in the 900 range.

Hey Leonis, that's a good price on the 533 - where did you see it for $1800 CDN? I saw one on eBay go for almost $2000 and thought THAT was a decent price...

That 1800CDN 533G4 is from one of the mac dealer in Richmond.

Also I went to couple of university bookstores and found out the same models are selling at $1700CDN!
