    As the title suggests, I'm curious about how much the last rev. 12" Powerbooks and 12" iBooks are worth these days. :confused: ...Any chances of seeing a 12" Macbook Pro?

    Last revision Powerbooks, maybe $700-$1000, depending on condition. I paid $1100 for mine because I bought it through Apple's refurb store, but ideally you'd be looking at around $800 on Craigslist or something.

    I love my 12in PB and I love the 12in. ibooks as well. I think people may desire them because you can't get anything smaller than a 13in for portability. On the otherhand, if they came out with a 12in MBP..the value would decrease significantly. But as for now I know I wouldn't trade my 12in. PB for anything less than a grand...thats just my opinion.

    I'm selling my 12" ibook G4 1.33 ghz to someone this week for $700. It's in great shape (no significant physical damage, no dead pixels), has the RAM maxed to 1.5GB, has 2 years left on Applecare, and comes with an Incase sleeve, Radtech Screensaver, and all of the original packaging. I think that both myself and the buyer are getting a good deal.

    For what it's worth, I almost bought the last model of a 12" Powerbook on Craiglist for $900. So $700 is probably a nice, round number you can rely on.

    Glad I didn't go for that, my MacBook is so sweet.
