And some lucky fool would pay $200,000 for that!? Now, if it was many PowerPC machines and a Mac Pro, then thats something different.

i would have sold the PM, unless ofcourse you like the wind tunnel that it is. in that case, you could still sell it, and move to live underneath the landing flightpath of an airport and you will feel right at home.

Yeah the Dual G4 took bit too room and was bit too noisy for the power it offered. It was not my fastest Mac or desktop machine so it there was no reason to keep it. PowerBook G4 on the other hand takes little room so even if I wouldn't use it that much it does not bother My MBP's charger popped yesterday so spare laptop is always good thing, waiting for new charger.

Fool's the word. I'm just waiting to see all the bid retractions at the end of these auctions when everyone realizes they are about to cough up $200 for a box of Twinkies.

That all turns the funny movie with the guy searching for twinkies in a zombie world in a total other perspective.

Ended up selling all of these so now my only Mac is MBP 2007. There was just no use for even that PowerBook. PowerBook gained lots of attention with different type of offers, even though I discovered this fault in it:

http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1493332

It did not stop the sale and I got pretty decent price for it. I pointed out that there are compatible topcases on eBay if the buyer wants to replace the touchpad board. It is still working after putting couple layers of paper there to create pressure.

I'm pretty sure I will still end up buying PPC machines in the future if I see a good deal, even though I really don't need one

Glad it all worked out
