Just want to clarify, I do NOT want to sell this, I just want to know what you would pay for it.

This is a two year old 14 inch iBook G4 with OSX Leopard installed. It has been well taken care of and in great condition. The battery is in fine shape due to the lack of mobile use of the computer, and will hold a charge under normal use for over 4 hours. Since it's purchase, I have upgraded the RAM to 1Gb, and the OS from Tiger to Leopard.

Specs below.

PowerPC G4 at 1.42Ghz
1Gb PC2700 SDRAM
60Gb Toshiba Hard disk
ATI Mobility Radeon 9550
Superdrive: Read/Writes DVDs/CDs
802.11g/b wireless
Bluetooth with EDR (enhanced data rate)
14.1" Screen

I'm basically just wondering how much it's worth. I am NOT looking to sell this!

Off the top of my head, maybe 500$? Just based on ebay prices..

Really?

It's one going for $406 which 16hours left. The keys are rubbed off, it has a line on the bottom of the screen. The RAM isn't as good, and the processor isn't as good.

I think I could get possibly $700, depending on how high this iBook goes. I think it could jump up at least to $600 in 16 hours.

Seeking valuations outside the Marketplace is not permitted, thank you.
