Save over $1,000! Ha.

Last time I checked:
2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo ≠ 2.3GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7
NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT 256 MB ≠ NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M with 512MB GDDR5 memory
Standard TrackPad ≠ Multitouch TrackPad
and USB ≠ Thunderbolt

And those are just the obvious differences.

Darn it, the ad is gone. I was hoping for a laugh.

Once and a great while I see a Powerbook seller post that kind of price on CL-Seattle

But mostly I see price ranges around $300 for cleanish powerbooks. Which is still

It is up to buyers to do their research. If they aren't going to do real research, they are better off completely avoiding used computer purchases.

I really dislike the sellers that say "the software alone is worth $xxx so that's why the price is higher"

It pisses them off when I ask for a clean wipe.
