View Full Version : Looking for a portable

Jul 10, 2004, 01:35 AM
I am looking for a portable mac (either ibook or powerbook)
Under $550 with the latest version of osx, and with an airport card installed.
Gently used is acceptable, but I am not looking for 'parts'.
Preferably a battery life over a few hours, and an airport base staton would be great!
It must be a g4 or greater.

If you are interested in selling a computer that fits this critera, or is close enough, reply or send me an e-mail: compie@gmail.com


Ps: Also, if you can reply by tomorrow afternoon, or tuesday of next week, I am sure I would take you offer.

If you have a mouse, or a case, or both, I would defanatly consider your offer.

This is my first mac, lets make it a good experince.

no G4 less than $550 that isnt anymore than parts, let alone having an airport card.

there's no way you'll be able to get a G5 for $550 or less :D


It must be a g4 or greater.

try the apple refurb section
i think you can pick up a G4 800MHz ibook for $799 when they have them that's probably your best bet or ebay, i highly doubt you'll be able to find a G4 for less than 550

Just out of curiosity; Me being some one that cannot find their keys when lost in my pocket; Where is the refurbished site at apple?

Yea, I have found quite a few on ebay that fit the criteria.
I am going to bid tomorrow on one if nothing shows up here.

Thanks for the help

just searched for completed 550 G4's on Ebay... they are all $800+

I wish you well on your endeavor, but this is not going to happen for < $550...

the G4 ibooks and powerbooks on eBay get bid up beyond $550. even the lowliest G4 powerbook, the 400MHz Titanium model from early 2001, goes for $600-700, unless there's something seriously wrong with it like fire damage or a messed up screen. you could get a messed up titanium powerbook (aka TiBook) for $550 or less. to find one in good condition, howeve, will take some luck and good timing.

I won one with everything I needed on ebay, paypal'd for it this morning, so I no longer need offers, thank you very much to all who replied.
