    Save over $1,000! Ha.

    Last time I checked:
    2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo ≠ 2.3GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7
    NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT 256 MB ≠ NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M with 512MB GDDR5 memory
    Standard TrackPad ≠ Multitouch TrackPad
    and USB ≠ Thunderbolt

    And those are just the obvious differences.

    Darn it, the ad is gone. I was hoping for a laugh.

    Once and a great while I see a Powerbook seller post that kind of price on CL-Seattle :rolleyes:

    But mostly I see price ranges around $300 for cleanish powerbooks. Which is still :(

    It is up to buyers to do their research. If they aren't going to do real research, they are better off completely avoiding used computer purchases.

    That is something I really hate, jerks adding pirated software in an effort to boost the selling price. Even if it was legal software, licenses are typically not transferable in such a manner.

    I really dislike the sellers that say "the software alone is worth $xxx so that's why the price is higher"

    It pisses them off when I ask for a clean wipe.
