    I am looking at one I found in this furom he said he would sell it to me for 1,500. he was a newbie but he said he but it from someone else in the forum. He said that he lived in nj. He agreed to using escrow.com. Is this a good idea.

    Why don't you just bite the bullet and get a 15 inch refurb. for $1699. There is nothing that the 17 inch can do that the 15 inches can. The 17 inch models are just huge, really, they are big, too big to fit on an airplane tray table, and with all the goodies, the PowerBook 15 inch is a great buy, i am over the moon with mine. Unfortunately, a 17 inch refurb. is $2399, so that is out of your price range. Try eBay.

    I decided not to go with the 17 inch that I found here on the forums I am going to wait a while and use my old imac. Then maybe when the powerbooks have a revision I will get one of ebay.
