Since it has a 60GB HD, you could probably get it for $250. I'm not interested, though. :o

$250? That seems a little high, doesn't it? I mean, I was hoping to get $200 for it, if possible, but I figured that might have been too high as well.

Anyone else have any thoughts? Is there that high of a demand for these Powerbooks still? If I could get that much, heck, I'd sell tomorrow and just rely on my desktop for a while.

Well all depends. I just got a steal of a deal. A G4 Powerbook 400mhz with 768 mb of RAM, 10GB HD. For $165 shipped. Yes it has a dead IB, but i can replace that. It also has been modified but still. Its a good price. So for that I would be thinking $175-$200 maybe more if it goes on ebay.

What OS is on it now, and what's the highest it can go?

Also were you thinking a little less than $200?

It's got 10.3.9 Panther on there right now. I'm pretty sure you can use XPostFacto for Tiger, but Panther installs without any hacks.

Thanks magid, but I already have one lined up, it's just a matter of when I'll get it now.

amacgenius - sorry, I forgot to answer your second question. I'm not really sure what the price I want to get for this is. Still checkin' around, though probably the $200 range.

Man, i was looking for a Lombard a couple weeks ago, for doing search in the library and surfing the www. at coffee shops.....It really is too bad...but good luck on your sell.

If you don't sell this soon, I may be interested. I'm trying to get together funding for something like a lombard and this seems to be a fine specimen.

I miss my Lombard (sold it to best friend for college)

I want a Lombard for my wife and they also seem to go for much less then Pismo's lol.

I would be willing to throw some offers your way later on this week if things work out with my other Ti 800mhz stuff selling.

Okay, this has SOLD for $250. Thanks to all you PM'd me and replied here.
