all working, with original boxes and packaging in good condition.

One of the things my friend decides to get rid of with his big cleanup.

You can buy this one for just under $1750, which is 30% less than it cost new, even without adjusting for inflation.

Unless that's your friend flogging it.

Thanks.

Something around/below that range would be an excellent price for an old used computer that was bought as... a computer, to be and had been used, not as an investment.

It's sold to a 17 kid who is extremely interested about technologies from Apple, which my friend found more rewarding than getting the highest price for it.

€850, the kid came with his parents to pay for it and asked loads of question to get it working again, but I was told that there were higher bids than that.
