    System is AS configured with apple and BRAND NEW:

    Subtotal $4,748.00

    * 2.5GHz Quad-core PowerPC G5
    * 3GB 533 DDR2 Non ECC SDRAM- 6x512
    * 500GB Serial ATA - 7200rpm (2x250GB SATA)
    * NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GT 256 MB SDRAM
    * AirPort Extreme + Bluetooth built-in
    * 16x SuperDrive DL (DVD+R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)
    * Apple Keyboard & Mighty Mouse - U.S English
    * Mac OS X - U.S. English
    * Accessory kit

    -Guys, make an offer and please no lowballs. I hate doing this but I DO NOT NEED a system this powerful (I'm very much content with the current system in my sig). So the reason? Just want to hook one of you guys up.

    This is the tower only - some cool things I saw - the damn thing is a watercooled 2xDUAL core PowerPC processor. The system is brand new, tested to boot up and that's it. It's ready to go to someone else who really needs the power (like a Pixar employee).

    Again, I'm not in a hurry - and I can take pics or whatever of it running if you like. I'm a longtime veteran of [H] so don't even think about calling me a bluff :p. I've got heatware under "flipachu" too w/ a perfect record.

    If you are semi-local to me, I'll deliver it to you, no joke - it weighs... a lot. But it looks like you definitely get what you pay for!

    Cheers guys and make me an offer (a serious one),
    flip

    Updated: Pricing at $3800 shipped (fast and w/ crazy insurance). $3600 local (and I actually hope this is what happens).

    Holy cow.

    How did you just end up with one of these that you didn't want? I can't imagine someone buying this for you on a whim and hoping you had a use for it.

    That's a wicked machine, by the way. I'll trade you the dual 2ghz G5 I'm on right now... It weighs a lot less so you won't have to pay as much to ship it out. ;)

    hey guys, yeah I have no idea on its warranty, so i'll say "negative" for now. Going down once more and i'm final. $3300 shipped out, $3100 picked up local.

    Someone is going to score an AWESOME system.

    Bump to help you sell this before the Mac Pro comes out and the price plummets. I can't believe no one wants this. It's truly a beast of a machine.

    Haha you guys (keep the awesome bumps coming). Looking preferably for a local buyer, but I guess shipping the unit out won't be too bad :).
