hello there!

as i ordered my macbook 2 weeks ago (should ship on the 18th :o) I'm selling my ibook ... a friend of mine would like to buy it and I offered it to him for 600 euros (aproxx. 720 USD which I think is a fair price with the extras) but he thinks it's to much, offering me 550 saying that the HD (a 60 GB Toshiba) already run the 1,5 years and will be defective someday ...

so what I'd like to ask: how much is it worth?

iBook G4, 1.2 GHz
768 MB Ram
60 GB HD
Airport Extreme, Bluetooth
Firewire, USB 2.0, Modem Ethernet ...
new battery (apple changed it 4 weeks ago)

the iBook is in good condition and comes with a carrying bag, a tucano second skin and Roxio Toast and Roxio Popcorn ...
so for how much would you guys sell it?

thanks in advance, Max

500 is what i would pay. 720 is way way too high. considering for 200 more you can almost get a brand new or even refurbed macbook...

also, be sure to include the software discs

i don't know the market in the UK, but for the US market, you're getting a great deal at 550. On eBay they're going for around $500-$700 (USD), so to get $750 is excellent.
