I'd say more around $175 shipped range...G3s typically don't sell all too well, except for people who want basic file servers

Justin216,
Yeah, I thought about that, but the the last Applevision 17" that I shiped cost like $45. I'm almost tempted to just keep the monitor and sell the box for, what, $125?

here in the Bay Area, beige G3s are basically worthless -- every other day people are selling them on craigslist for about $50.
On the other hand, in areas of the country without such an active craigslist, I'd say that $125 should be about right.

I have 5 of these things and I will be lucky to get $50 for each. Depends on where you sell.

Yeah $200 is kind of high. The problem like you say is the shipping costs. You'd be better off trying to sell this locally.
