It is very likely that most of the people viewing this post already have a mac. Perhaps you should try ebay?

BakedBeans
Dec 8, 2004, 07:01 AM
its on ebay thanks fizzle.

alot of trading goes through these boards and if im looking to buy a new mac then places like this board are the first places i try as i know most of the people are trustworthy unlike ebay where you have 50/50 scams
plus ive given the guys on here a little discount :)

I'm not sure to be honest. I was going to have a look and see how it was doing on e bay and maybe place a bid.

I need to buy a new Powerbook, but was holding off till after crimbo. I use a 12" Rev A at the moment and the screen size and lack of a slot for a 3G card is a problem now I've recently changed job.

I'm just not sure mate. Where abouts in the UK do you live?

Definitely sounds a good deal... I got tempted on that blue iPod mini as am fed up with having to hold my iPod when jogging :rolleyes:

Al-Famous, if you haven't already, you may also want to put an ad up on craigslist.org. I don't know where in the UK you may be, but they have a few UK locales up there. (:

Good luck.

yeah i cant believe it,

its worth more but for some reason people have not snapped this one up

( although i have been offered some kind of scooter/moped for it :):D)

ive got a couple of guys trying to get money together but i cant go lower than 1350 for over 2000 worth of stuff

I'm also very, very tempted by your powerbook... the price is so good I really am shocked it hasn't been snapped up! I'm having to try to resist as I've already got a 12" PB and an iPod..... but a 15" with all of the higher spec...hmmmmm

Dammit! I was all happy with my 12" PB!! Will definately give it some thought though. The major probs will be having to sell on my 12" PB......

I may be intersted as i am looking into buying a 1.5 15" Powerbook anyways. Just wondering though, why is the open buttn on the unit blue? I thought that they were all silver. Sorry if i am sounding a fool if this is right, i am a novis to the mac family.

I'm real interested, but i will be waiting until the 11th anyways to see what is announced, but that's an ace deal and if nothing comes of the announcements, i'm havin it. Although i still don't understand why the open button is graphite colour (looks blue lol)
