    Do you have a mental problem?

    you wanna sell a computer 12 years old with 2 major problems for the same price you paid for it, when you can get a working imac model several years younger than yours for 1/2 the price on ebay?

    what should you do? - go see a doctor about your mental problem

    A computer, loses 50%, of it's value, as soon as you plug it in.

    Sorry, you're scamming. A broken iMac will devalue.

    A 12 year old broken computer. You should pay someone to haul it away!

    Without the power supply and hard drive you have a box, a motherboard, and maybe a few peripherals like keyboard and mouse, none of which can be tested without a power supply and hard drive, or a motherboard tester.

    Not working I say $100-$150. Good luck selling it for more.

    Something old and broken isn’t going to sell for its original price and if it does you’re being unethical at best.

    Update: Your update confirms you’re trying to scam people.

    Reduce the asking price. Let's face it, the machine doesn't work so as far as a buyer knows it could be a lump of junk. I will be surprised if you can give it away. You could put a new PSU and hard drive into it but that still doesn't guarantee a sale.

    Sorry, won't go near that high. The problem is that computer technology leaps forward at such a fast pace, older computers depreciate faster than cars do. I really doubt you will get more than a few hundred dollars for that iMac....at the best.
