    That is if I dont buy it.


    A guy came into the store and while he was talking to a co-worker they got on teh subject of macs. He bought this machine for his spoiled son but he didnt want it so its sat in the boxes. Its under a year old and hes tried to sell it on ebay but since he doesnt have any feedback and the price is so low everyone thinks its a scam

    10.3 (Panther)
    Dual 2ghz G5
    dual 250gb hd
    2gb ram
    superdrive
    nvda 6800 video card
    30" cinema display
    bluetooth keyboard
    bluetooth mouse
    iSight

    $5000 :eek3:

    Its under a year old so its still got warranty on it and he said I could come over and play with it if I wanted it. Hes still got everything it came with including boxes and paperwork from apple. He paid a pretty penny for it all and this is a killer price

    As someone who is using a very similar setup, it will change the way you use your computer, especially the monitor.

    The price is good, I'd offer $4500 and see if he bites!

    from talking to the guy, i bet he would. he was sincere about it too. he said hes not trying to screw anyone so if they got it and 6 months down the road if it broke he'd refund them. however, he is a stranger so i'd get that in writing

    Dual 30" :dunno:

    I've got the G5 and 30" at my office, and use the Powerbook at home. This would give me a desktop setup at home! ;)

    thats a sweet deal, especially since the monitor is worth more than the G5.
