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

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 :)

Dec 9, 2004, 05:31 PM
Where on e bay is it?


Dec 9, 2004, 05:54 PM
Where on e bay is it?


its not on there anymore or showing up for some reason?, why, are you interested mate??

Dec 9, 2004, 06:01 PM
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?


Dec 10, 2004, 04:46 AM
i live in hampshire but i can travel if your interested (it might have to be this weekend though :) ) where in wales are you? maybe we could meet half way if you wanted to have a look? like i said in the description it is in perfect condition with all receipts boxes ect

Dec 12, 2004, 02:19 PM

price drop down to 1350 to sell quickMy god that's tempting! Someone's GOTTA snap this up!
can i have some feedback on why its not selling/.We have a relatively small UK based community here.

Dec 17, 2004, 07:26 AM

but 1350 is a steal your right edesign

it only lasts till xmas :) afterwards its going on ebay

Dec 17, 2004, 07:46 AM
Do you have msn or ichat? or yahoo?


Dec 17, 2004, 09:39 AM
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:

Apart from that another nice way to get all us Brits into one thread :D

Dec 17, 2004, 09:56 AM
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.

Dec 17, 2004, 11:29 AM
yeah im on ichat

i have had an offer for the powerbook on its own, miles from finialised so if you want the mini or the powerbook get bidding ;)

Dec 18, 2004, 06:00 AM
hmm. everythin for 1350. still tryin to sort money out

Dec 18, 2004, 08:54 AM
hmm. everythin for 1350. still tryin to sort money out

Dec 29, 2004, 07:00 PM

Jan 4, 2005, 07:42 AM
price drop down to 1350 to sell quick
I cannot BELIEVE no one has snapped this up yet :eek:

It's SOOOOOOO tempting! (But sadly I can't right now)

Jan 4, 2005, 08:04 AM

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

Jan 4, 2005, 12:57 PM
Check your PMs :eek:

Jan 4, 2005, 02:57 PM
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......

Jan 5, 2005, 05:52 PM
How about a pig? I'll trade a pig for it! Two???

Oh well... :( My wife's iBook just died the big death so I thought I would ask... (ee-aw voice) :)

Jan 8, 2005, 03:15 AM
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.

Jan 8, 2005, 07:24 AM
Hmm my sister is looking for one of these. I shall have to tell her about this. Whereabouts are you?

Jan 8, 2005, 08:21 AM
im in hampshire

i mean there is a pretty good chance its already sold to be honest but everyone can have a chance of getting a good deal untill its finalised

Jan 8, 2005, 06:02 PM
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)

is the ipod mini included?

Jan 9, 2005, 05:07 PM
