Since it has a 60GB HD, you could probably get it for $250. I'm not interested, though.

$250? That seems a little high, doesn't it? I mean, I was hoping to get $200 for it, if possible, but I figured that might have been too high as well.

Anyone else have any thoughts? Is there that high of a demand for these Powerbooks still? If I could get that much, heck, I'd sell tomorrow and just rely on my desktop for a while.

Well all depends. I just got a steal of a deal. A G4 Powerbook 400mhz with 768 mb of RAM, 10GB HD. For $165 shipped. Yes it has a dead IB, but i can replace that. It also has been modified but still. Its a good price. So for that I would be thinking $175-$200 maybe more if it goes on ebay.

What OS is on it now, and what's the highest it can go?

Also were you thinking a little less than $200?

It's got 10.3.9 Panther on there right now. I'm pretty sure you can use XPostFacto for Tiger, but Panther installs without any hacks.

Thanks magid, but I already have one lined up, it's just a matter of when I'll get it now.

amacgenius - sorry, I forgot to answer your second question. I'm not really sure what the price I want to get for this is. Still checkin' around, though probably the $200 range.

If you don't sell this soon, I may be interested. I'm trying to get together funding for something like a lombard and this seems to be a fine specimen.

I miss my Lombard (sold it to best friend for college)

I want a Lombard for my wife and they also seem to go for much less then Pismo's lol.

I would be willing to throw some offers your way later on this week if things work out with my other Ti 800mhz stuff selling.
