    I just came in possession of a PowerBook 500, but it doesn't have a charger... Can someone please let me borrow theirs to see if this thing works? I'll pay for shipping :D...

    I live in cali and have one, but you would have to buy it off me

    Oh... Ok... I just re-wrote in there... Thanks!!

    That's what I'm trying to avoid... I don't wanna purchase a $60+ charger and then it turns out that this machine doesn't work... Thank you anyways...

    It'll only cost you no less than $30. I can't find any listed on eBay though.

    You want the M1910 or M1893 model.

    Thank you for the reply, but that's what I want to avoid.... Like I mentioned earlier to Lil Chillbil, I don't wanna spend money on a charger and then finding out that this machine doesn't work..

    Why don't you mail it to one of the folks here?

    That's a good idea..

    Or even better, maybe someone local here in LA would like to meet up for a few minutes to test it out?? There's a free coffee in it for you.... :D (or whatever beverage you prefer at a starbucks)

    LOL While the smog of LA is appealing I'll stick to southern Germany not SOCAL:D

    Breathing in all that smogless air is sooo over-rated... There's nothing like having to cough up a lung every time you inhale... LOL

    You might consider purchasing it from a vendor with a return policy that suits your situation.

    Those adapters were always expensive. My first Mac was a 520c PowerBook. Loved that machine. Got it at a $1,000 discount from a reseller in Cali at the end of its run. Maxed out RAM, added a card cage and flew like the wind on the early 'Net.

    That's a good idea. I just did that. Got one for $10 on eBay.

    Hopefully this machine works so that I can sell it. If not, I think I can still sell it as parts.
