They had Apple G4s at the Princeton Surplus Sale last week (only a couple, faculty took most of them on Tuesday), but they were going for $41/each, with a keyboard and mouse (if yoou found them in the bins)... They were the big grey/smoked plastic models, similar in design to the blue/white G3s... CPUs were around 400 MHz, RAM was minimal and unsure about HDs - probably minimal as well...
