I can second Disko's suggestion as I have been using iSale for over a year now. It makes dealing on ebay a snap :D

Although iSale is more expensive than GarageSale its user interface much better, and I find it a far more pleasant program to use.

Thanks for the quick replies everyone.

Both offer free trials so I'll try both.

Time to sell my first ever Mac - MDD Dual G4.
It's like saying seeya to your first girlfriend :cry:

Just to mix it up a bit here.
Are there no free alternatives?
You could spending upwards of sixty bucks just to get started!
Seems a bit counter intuitive to be paying eBay and GarageSale or iSale, for an infrequent seller.

Did you offer it for sale here, before trying eBay?

Cheers,

Ive been forced to use Turbo Lister under Virtual PC for quite some time now. Its a painful, painful exercise...

When eBay gets their **** together they&#39;ll release proper version.

No I did not. Why?
(forgive the following sarcasm)

Hmmm... would a niche group of bleeding edge Apple fanatics pay up for a machine 2 generations old? A G4? That&#39;s &#39;old&#39;? Just after the MacPro release? Whilst they shun cheap as chips Dual G5&#39;s on the trading forum? Hmmm...

Now why didn&#39;t i post it here first...dunno. Would you like to buy this beautiful machine?

Hey new2mac
You should&#39;ve known what you were going to get, looking for advice here, and then sending your precious off to eekbay&#33;
I think what you&#39;ll find here is a certain understanding of your particular machine, and thus, a very succinct appraisal of what it&#39;s worth. Like have you replaced the dodgy - insert the many parts here - or, does it include all the current OS discs, etc?
And remember, you may just want that beast back, some day, just like all those jumping from there Quad G5&#39;s (none yet), only to realise the speed they were expecting just ain&#39;t there in real world terms&#33;

I think you would find that people would be very interested in the G4. Just because its "old" doesnt mean it would be perfect for the guy wanting to surf the net and write essays at uni. Give it a try.

And if someone buys - youll know it&#39;ll get looked after&#33;

This has gone way off topic, and I apologise as it is my fault.

While I would love a G5 or MacBook of any sort, there is no way that I can afford it, so, despite them being &#39;cheap as chips&#39;, I don&#39;t even look at those items.

Tell me more about your beautiful machine, and the price you are thinking of, and you never know.

Cheers,
Andrew

Ok - in the spirit of community I&#39;ll post it in the trading forum.
I&#39;d love to sell it to an AppleTalker. So we&#39;ll see if the talkers can do the walk.
Sorry about the thread deviation.

Has the sale notice been posted? If so, I can&#39;t find it.
