    I won a bid on ebay yesterday for a NEW 17 Inch powerbook with the following configuration
    1.5Ghz G4
    2GB PC333 Ram
    80GB HDD
    128MB Radeon 9700

    Is £1550 a good deal for this laptop, or am i paying too much???

    Thanks :)

    In Canada the new 17" 1.67 GHz is GBP1,415 with 512 Mb, with a third party RAM upgrade GBP1,762

    But the bigger question is: whether you receive the machine or not. If it is a scam, then it's the worst deal in the world.

    Better to have done the research before bidding, methinks.

    Wow...a 17-foot PowerBook. Not very portable, but it must be a heck of an experience.
