    I have never sold anything online before and would like to sell my 15" PowerBook. Any suggestions on how to sell it would be great! Should I do ebay? Or is there a good company that will buy it from me for a reasonable price?

    with 24 more posts you can put in up on the marketplace forums.

    I like graig'slist and meeting the potential buyer in person though.

    I recently sold my old Powerbook using Craigslist. Everything went fine once I filtered the serious buyers from all the people asking me to ship it to Africa. I've just about given up on eBay. It has become increasingly 'lawless' over the years, at least when it comes to tech items, which is what I've used it for. My feeling is that people will be more honest when they know they have to face the buyer or seller in person. You also don't have to deal with the eBay "DOA" claims since you can prove that the item works before the seller hands over the money.

    Be careful on Craigslist. Robberies are all too common.

    But I too am wondering what venues exist for selling used Macs. I upgrade every 18 months or so and I've been using eBay. However, just this week I've been scammed on eBay -- a fraudulent zero-feedback bidder ended my auction with buy-it-now and never paid. I'm left with $30 in listing fees that eBay does not refund. (eBay refunds insertion fees and final value fees, but not listing fees for options like "Pro Pack").

    So I'm looking for other places too. Bye bye eBay.

    This is not a Marketplace thread. Any more dealing or offers in this thread will mean the thread is deleted and the OP will lose out. Thanks.

    I don't think I will use ebay. I have gotten a few e-mails about it from craigslist.
