hmm.. you're lookin at maybe $1200. Maybe even less depending on who wants to buy it and what they're gonna do with it.

i think thats a bit high mac, i'd say more around $350 - $400, i dont know speed of cd-rw but im assuming 52x, P3 1.02ghz though expensive pale in performance to anything at the moment, so many people would rather go with athalon XPs or the P4s (more bang for the buck). ZIP drives are completely obsolete these days, especially the 100 mb ones. And onboard video is a definate price drop. Keep in mind all opinions are being made on the current technology and prices.

AMD CPU's are good as well as intel. THe AMD Athalon series and the Barton series (a branch of athalon) are top competitors, and the Intel always has the Pentium 4 series
