All,

I was really in the market for a Powerbook, but for my purposes, I really can't justify the expense (even though a G4 would be nice). Anyhow, I am looking for an Apple to last me ~3 years, have airport, etc. Below is the text from an eBay auction that I am considering. It includes goodies such as Office, Airport, and Applecare (2 yrs 11 mos left according to seller). The seller has good feedback too. He has a buy it now price of $1400, which I find very good. What do you think (I'm very cautious, because I got screwed on eBay with a Powerbook last week).

Thanks.

<<Edit>> Can I use any wireless access point with the airport card? i.e. do I have to buy an apple airport base station, or any 802.11b compatible (linksys, etc)? Thanks.

I am selling only because the newly introduced 12" PowerBook would better suit my needs and I am unable to return this unit to the Apple Store because I opened the box.

Well, forget it, someone already used "buy it now," and it's gone... damnit!
