Selling Powerbook 12"... Need advice please!

Hello everyone!

I recently purchased a MBP and would like to sell my PowerBook 12" machine. It is completely maxed out: Leopard, 1.5Ghz, 1.25GB RAM, and 120GB HD. It also runs iWork. Cosmetically, it's a beauty... I actually don't think there are any scratches at all. The only problem is that one of the usb ports does not work all the time.

Here are my questions:

How much is it worth?
Where should I sell it (Craig's List, eBay?)

Thank you!

There are threads on here regarding CL and eBay.

There are places on the interwebz regarding pricing on your computer. Check out what the going rate on eBay is.

in my opinion, you avoid fees and shipping issues with CL but also have to deal with people you dont know in person. (always meet in public place....but even then I have a story regarding that)

My experience with CL, having just recently sold a MBP and bought an iMac, was luckily very smooth.

Check out some of the CL posts in this forum though for more feedback.

Should be worth around 500-700 USD. eBay is more popular and CL is more sketchy, it's more location based.
