***SOLD***
This is probably a not so hot deal for ppl from the US, but there are some CDN lurkers here.. so i'll still post it.

Warranty until March 25, 2006

1.67Ghz PowerPC G4 Processor
128MB VRAM

Airport Wireless Extreme Card (Wifi)
Motion Sensor
And everything else that comes with the Powerbook.

Also, I have lots of stuff that I’m going to be selling with the Powerbook
MX900 – Bluetooth Mouse
Apple Wireless Keyboard
Iskin – Keyboard Protector
15” Powerbook Spare Battery – UNUSED
Waterfield 15” Sleeve – www.sfbags.com

Also, I have lots of stuff that Im going to be selling with the Powerbook
MX900 Bluetooth Mouse

how much for the MX900? does it have buiilt in BT or is it a USB dongle? i have the mx700, but i have bluetooth, and i want to utilize it and cutdown on USB usage on my ibook.

Right now, i have no offers for the Powerbook :(
So unless i get a decent offer for the Powerbook...
I'm not parting any of it. If i do decide to keep it, i would prefer to have everything.

The MX900 does not require the USB cradle for it to work. As long as you have built in BT on your PB or iBook, it'll work perfectly fine without the cradle. I just use the cradle for charging.

I'll contact the people in the post if i decide to part out.

Thanks

Seems kind of expensive as I can get a 15" online for $2199 CND, sure there's tax, but it's also new. There isn't much difference in the prices between the US and Canada when you take exchange rates into account as well, so I don't know if it's a deal for anyone there either. I can't image you'd get more than $2000 for the 512MB set up. Just my 2¢

I'm offering a better deal if whoever is interested in buying the entire setup.

And good for you if you can get it for $2200. The Powerbook lists for $2400 + tax. Not everyone is eligable for education discount.

If you take into consideration all the accessories i'm offering..
It exceeds the price i'm asking

2GB of OEM Samsung Ram - $250CDN per stick = $500CDN
MX900 Bluetooth Mouse - $70CDN
Apple Wireless Keyboard - $40 CDN
Iskin Keyboard Protector $25 CDN
15 Powerbook Spare Battery UNUSED - $130 CDN
Waterfield 15 Sleeve www.sfbags.com - $60 CDN
Antec USB notebook cooler loose connection but works $FREE$
Shure E4C - $250 CDN

Let do the math,
$825 without the earphones, $1075 with.
And i listed most of the items at market price and not retail price.

So you can take your threadcrapping elsewhere :o

I understand where you're coming from, I would want to get the most for my stuff too, but I wouldn't want to see someone get a bad deal if they went for just the powerbook. As you said, if you go for the whole package it's a good deal, but a little steep for just the PB. Hopefully you'll find someone who wants the whole thing. :)

Powerbook w/512mb of RAM - $2300CDN -> $2200CDN -> $2100 CDN
Powerbook w/512mb of RAM and everything else $2600CDN -> $2500CDN -> $2400 CDN

Powerbook w/2GB of RAM - $2700 CDN-> $2600CDN -> $2500 CDN

Sold as the stock unit (PB & 512mb) it is $2100cdn or about $1840 usd?

If so that may be why US buyers haven't hit on it. Refurbs are $1699 usd.
