    Sorry, macs don't depreciate. It's practically pointless to buy a used mac.

    Ok. Doesn't have to be full speed. This is for a friend, and Cow, your advice shall hereafter go in one ear and out the other.

    i am seriously looking for a DIECENT computer. Macintosh. I've converted a PC user in to a MACINTOSH user and he ain't got that much money. Give him some pity. his PC is an AMD Duron 600mhz.

    His parents won't pay more than that. SO be SERIOUS!

    I am tired. Tired. Tired. Tired. TIIIIRRRRED.

    :laugh: :laugh: 2:14 eastern am :tired: :laugh:

    to give you an idea... i recently sold my 400MHz G4 tower (320 RAM, 32MB Radeon AGP) for $600. i have seen some people sell that same system for $700 - $800

    It's his choice to buy whatever, but you'd be hard pressed to find a G4 for $600 that could play war 3 well. A G4 in that range would be carrying a 16mb rage pro. A radeon if he's lucky.

    I hope he's buying the mac for other purposes and not purely for games...that would be a very poor decision. He'd probably be better off upgrading his current system.

    Is he selling the Duron? If so he could afford more with a confirmed sale of it. A student or casual user might be interested.

    Here is one currently available with the "Buy it Now" option on eBay for $695:

    Mentions Rage 128 in one of the pics and it's a PCI G4 (Yosemite) model I believe. :(

    My G4/400 with a ATi Rage 128(Yikes!) Runs WC3 with everything on low not bad, in huge battles, 4 or more battle it slows down, but not enough to keep you from micromanaging.
