    I am wanting to buy an iMac so I can switch to Mac OSX. Kinda tired of Windows after so many years using it. I was wondering how much my computer I want to sell is worth.

    eMachines T5010
    OS - Windows XP Home Edition
    Processor - Intel Pentium 4 2.93GHz
    Memory - 512Mb
    Hard Drive Space - 200GB
    Graphics Card - Not sure, but it has 128Mb
    DVD±RW (+R double layer)

    *comes with a keyboard, mouse, 15" Flat Screen Monitor, speakers

    I haven't really had any sort of problems with it. I've never had to send it in the have it repaired, nor have I ever used the recovery discs. It runs really smooth and I just need some extra money to use on buying my new computer. How much should I sell it for?

    Also, would the 17" iMac with 2GHz, 1GB Memory, 160GB Hard Drive, Superdrive, ATI X1600 run World of Warcraft, if anyone knows.
    Here are the Mac requirements, but I just want to make sure that iMac has that or more.

    · Mac System OS X 10.3.5 OS:
    933 MHz or higher G4 or G5 processor
    512 MB RAM or higher; DDR RAM recommended
    ATI or NVIDIA video hardware with 32 MB VRAM or more
    4 GB or more of available hard drive space
    MacOS X 10.3.5 or newer
    56k or higher modem with an Internet connection

    Given that new machines with better specifications sell in the $400 range, I doubt you'll get more than $200-250 max.
