If no one on MR has one to sell you, you could always check out eBay.

Sometimes there are some good offerings.

I might have one up for sale after Macworld. I am looking to replace it with the sub-notebook if it comes out.

Specs are...
15" Aluminum Powerbook G4
1.5GHz PowerPC G4
512 MB DDR SDRAM
80Gig HD.

Make and offer and I will consider it on the 15th.

150? Try closer to 500 for a PB like that, maybe even more.

you will find an ibook G3 with that price, not a Powerbook. Just in comparison i did a straight up trade from my PB 15 in to a C2D macbook, even though thats a great deal for me it still shows they are worth more than 150.

how about 150?
Yeah, good luck being taken seriously after an offer like that.

/$/150 is a perfect offer for something that has no guide price.

seriously where in society do you see someone offering their money for a product which has not been set a value?

i would have started lower, /$/1 maybe?

but yeah, the seller sets out his stall first in business.

PB 15s are going for about $600.

Yeah, that is quite a low balled offer. I would consider $500. But like i said i must wait till after purchasing *hopefully* the sub-notebook as this is what i use for school and need to transfer my files.

I have a PB G4 that I'm about to sell in the next few weeks. It's the final revision 15" 1.67GHz G4, 1440x960 high-resolution screen, dual-layer SuperDrive, 80GB HDD, 2GB RAM. It has the original software and manuals, AC adapter with the cord extension, DVI to VGA adapter, and two batteries. It is in perfect working condition (using it now), but has a couple of dents. One by the PC Card slot and on the corner by the SuperDrive. I'm thinking about $700 USD shipped with room for negotiation.
