    As well as it ever has, no doubt. Nevertheless, prepare to be
    disappointed. While you have put thousands of dollars into this beauty,
    anyone lacking your relationship with it will look at it and simply see
    that a new iMac is better/faster/cheaper/etc./etc. on just about very
    criterion.

    I have been in your situation on three occasions and only once was I
    able to get what I thought was a reasonable price (back in '89, for a
    512e). When the SE/30 was retired, it went as a hand-me-down to my
    niece; and when the Centris 650 w/ PPC601 upgrade had outlived its
    usefulness to me, it went on 'extended loan' to a friend who was still
    using (in 1999) a Plus!

    My advice: give/lend it to a friend or relative, or strip out all the
    gourmet parts (sell them on eBay) and donate the remaining 'base' model
    to a school or charity. You might even be able to get a tax credit for
    doing so.

    cheers,

    perhaps $350 at the highest. Often I check closing bids at ebay to get a price idea.

    Don't know where you're located but there's a non-profit in my area
    called the Computer Recyling Center (http://www.crc.org). They accept
    aging computer systems as donations for schools and other non-profits.
    The systems don't even need to be working. Macs are a world unto their
    own and I donated my SuperMac c500 with a G3 accelerator card to them
    with the monitor and a lot of old software and manuals. It felt good
    to clean that stuff out of my closets and my life.

    Perhaps there's a similar organization near you...
