Mac IIci

The Local GoodWill has a fairly nice Mac IIci. I've done some research
on the Low End Mac web site, but am still undecided if I should buy it.
Low End Mac says it is a "Mac Best Buy", meaning that it is one of the
models to buy, instead of avoid. Some models are best avoided because
of compromises in design or limited expandability.

It is uses a 25mhz Motorola 68030 processor. What would be the
approximate Intel/PC equivalent? The 386DX-25? The 486DX-25? faster,
slower, what? I don't have much Mac experience at all. I own a Plus,
but after cleaning it, I haven't done anything with it but let it sit,
mainly because of the silly 800K drives.

It has a Radius video card, but unfortunately, the Radius monitor got
sold separately. It was a "Pivot" monitor. I pulled the monitor of the
nonfunctioning IIcx and the ci boots fine, and is running System 7.1.
How much should I offer?
