    I think you will be lucky to get $1500. With the new MBPs available there isn't much of a market for a G4. Add to that, the 17" PB is kind of a niche product anyway, it may take you awhile to sell. Search on eBay and you can see what they are going for there.

    You should always look around before pricing- particularly at the refurbs at the apple store. I agree it's a niche product- it's for a more specific type of customer than the 2 smaller sizes.

    The Powerbook market is pretty brutual...
    Your pretty much taking a huge loss on what you initially paid.

    Is there a reason for selling the system? Upgrading or just need the cash?
    A lot of smaller stores do trade in programs so you could see if they could cut you a deal.

    the reason I'm selling is because I need a smaller powerbook, the desks are at my university are just too small to handle this thing.
