Hello,

I been racking my brain on trying to locate information on an outdated Powerbook that I have picked up recently as an extra computer. I purchased it from a friend who sells refurbished mac computers.

My question is....How much does this hunk of crap go for???

It's a:
PowerBook G4 12 inch notebook
Mac OS X 10.2.8 ( I NEED TO UPDATE THE SOFTWARE)
MEMORY 640 MB
PROCESSOR 867 MHz PowerPC G4
40 GB HARD DRIVE

Can someone assist me please!

Since it is a hunk of cr@p. I'll pay $20 to cover shipping if you send it my way. :)

http://www.mac2sell.net/ that site should help with a base value.

Look at completed eBay auctions for a high end value.

$300 is probably the most you'll get. That's the base model 12" powerbook. The ram was upgraded I see. Battery life and accessories can bring the price up.

Yeah, $300 or near is OK. Apparently they have a couple of shortcomings over the next 1GHz model. Still very useable though.
