Yay a happy story...just got my powerbook 12"

Some good news other than a complaint about this or that being broken or complaint about apple care...I just bought a powerbook off a member here (jacksyi) for a great deal. The unit had some problems with it, but after isolating the issue to a broken harddrive and battery, I felt I could fix it...and I did! I was worried that the 1.33gHz 1.25gb set up might be too slow for me (coming from a 2.0 C2D 2gb PC set up...but this machine is pretty snappy. I am still running panther haha at the moment...but will be running leopard soon, to see how much the machine is bogged down.

Just wanted to share the good news and happiness. I can truly see why these 12" Powerbook g4s are such the hot item.
