Hi folks,

I'm looking around for a Dual 800 PowerMac or a single QuickSilver 933. I had a look at the new machines but up here in Canada I can't get them for another 2 weeks and we pay horrible taxes on top of a purchase (15%).

So I think a used Mac is in order for me. If you know or have such a beast please repond here. Thanks!

P.S. I'm looking on eBay as well

I have realized that a 800mhz Powerbook would much better suit my needs at a college campus environment than my 933 (although I do love it) If you're interested in purchasing my 933 (w/ 17" LCD with no burnt or damaged pixels OR fingerprints) email me at: bkonar@ameritech.net

933 with 2mb L3
512mb ram
superdrive
internal zip 250
80 gb HD
GeForce4MX (waiting for ATI9700)
no pci slots
keyboard replaced by apple unecessarily, therefore u can either have a QS keyboard with apple on bottom or without
apple mouse never used
ill give you my printer if u want for free (epson 777, it's nothing special)
will come in original packaging, with all manuals and cds, can be factory restored if necessary

My tax is 8.25% but wow, you guys are getting robbed. Countries w/ all those free health benefits n things have super high taxes. Republicans are good for sumthin afterall.

Yeah from what I've heard loads of things (including healthcare) are free in Norway.
