    I just ordered a MBP and have been looking to sell my PB for good money. I got an offer so far for £600

    The specs are basically a maxed out last revision PB G4

    1.67GHz G4
    1440X960 15" Display
    2GB RAM
    100GB 7200 RPM
    ATI Radeon 9700 with 128MB VRAM
    DL DVD Burner
    AppleCare till March 07

    I'd like to think i could get at least £750 for it. Is this possible or am i just dreaming?, how much do you think a machine like this is worth?

    I think you might be able to push it to $650 or $700, but no more than tha\t. I'd also imagine that the market for PowerPC Machines would start to decilne soon, so you better sell that sucker fast. :D

    You could probably get £700 for it... that's about $1400 USD, which is what a maxed out one would probably go for.


    then again, I have an unnatural attraction to PowerBooks. Oh, G4! :)


    edit:
    I totally forgot how much the british pound is worth. Go for £750. :)

    On eBay I see a lot of 15" G4s going for less than £600. You do have yours maxed out though so I'd expect it to for between £700 and £800 if you get lucky. Personally, I think £600 is a fair offer for a PPC machine. But if you shop around you'll probably find a higher offer.

    £600-£700. If you're lucky, you could maybe get closer to £750 or £800.
