I currently have a Tibook. And i have a vacation planned for xmas and wanted to travel light. I was planning on buying a new mac (most likely a desktop) in Jan. so i thought i'd sell my Powerbook and get a 12" iBook to tide me over, and i wanted to know what you think it would go for fairly. Other than a Superdrive it's pretty well loaded. Here are the Specs:

800 mhz G4 Tibook 15"
All original box, materials packaging, etc.
Applecare til sept 2005
80 gb 5400rpm HD
Combo Drive
firewire 400
Airport Wireless Card (.b)
2 USB 1.0 slots in computer
DVI out
2 USB 2.0 slots via PC card
1 firewire 400
Audio - Out
D-Link Bluetooth adapter
NO dead pixels
Radtech Powerbook Sleeve (grey)
Marware black slim bag
Marware Screen Protector (always used with the powerbook when closed)

let me know what you think

CHECK EBAY FOR A COMPRABLE SYSTEM and that will give you the fastest and best estimate of what your system will go for ...

Sorry, I'm picky about this, you mean 1.0 GB of RAM, or 1,024 MB. Its a binary system of 2 so yeah. Sorry not to be rude, just correcting somthing... unless you mean 1.25GB

1024MB = 1GB, I'm not seeing the issue here. The machine is quite well loaded, in all honesty, and it's one that should not be passed up. You could probably get $300 for the ram alone, $50 for the Bluetooth adapter, $100 for the Airport, and $100 combined for sleeve, bag, and screen protector. That's $550 right there. The machine, especially with a year of Applecare left, will go for probably $1200, especially considering that hard drive. So, I'd say you can get $1750 total for it.

No kidding, I found Ti PB's and for a 400MHz one they go for $900+ and that only has like 256MB of RAM and 20GB HDD.
