Refurbs on apple.com. Pretty decent price if you don't mind a refurbished unit. Comes with standard warranty, etc.

Of course people have been happy with their G5 1.6 purchases. I personally feel they were and are overpriced, but that $1400 for an Apple certified refurb isn't that bad.

All the G5s have been on the refurb page for a few months on and off. There will be more for sure. $1399 is a sweet price, check back every other day or so, it's updated daily it seems except weekends.
Refurbs from Apple are the best deal you can find cause you get the 1 year warranty and can buy Applecare. My refurb Rev A 17" powerbook is perfect, seemingly new.

I have installed two G5s 1.6 in our lab. They work great and at that price are very good value.

Got it yesterday. Works great. Can't tell its a refurb except that it came in a brown box that said refurbished product instead of the usual black box. For $1399, its a good deal. Very Snappy (tm)
