At a glance, I'd guess a really rough estimate of $900-$1200, not really sure because of how much the monitor, speakers, zip drive and software would be worth used.

As a general rule, go to www.dell.com and configure a similar machine. Take about 30% off that. People don't figure bundled software into their offer to you, so you may want to try to sell it separately. PCs don't have near the retail value of Macs. I tried to sell a PIII 650 system for $250 and couldn't get an offer.

I went to Dell and priced out a 1.7GHz Dimension 2350 Intel Celeron computer with everything else the same as what I've got besides the sound card and video card because they were intergrated and got $1,676.00.Thanks for the help. I can't wait to get my new PowerBook.
