I want to buy a used G4 tower but I am not sure what I should be looking at for a good price/performance ratio. I am currently looking at a 800DP QS for $989 or a 867DP MDD for $1049. I have around $1000 to spend as well. Anyone else know of any better deals out there?

Is $1150 a good deal for a 867DP MMD with 280GB HDD space and 1.25GB RAM?

No. Shop around more and wait.

www.macofalltrades.com has better systems for $1K or less.

Check the MacNN Marketplace a few times a week for even better values.

which better systems are you talking about? I only see a 867DP MMD for $999.99. That is only with 512MB RAM. They have a 1.42DP MMD for $1299 though.

If you want Airport, don't forget it's going to cost another 100+ bucks
