    say you are looking at a used g5 power mac. the seller is asking extra money for it b/c of installed software (final cut pro and something else). when you jew their price, is that a point for you that software can be pirated and you wont pay for extra software?

    I'd tell them to wipe it out and I'll install my own programs.

    yeah, offer them less for it with out software, if it's legit software, then they should be able to provide manuals and cd's to sell it separately
