    What's a good price for the ibook in my sig. It has ilife '06 and Microsoft word. It's in good condition, normal wear and tear no huge scratches or dinges. I did have a serial number engraved on the bottom while in college living in the dorms, nothing big(it's pretty small and it's on the bottom). Thanks

    There's no way you can get $700 for a 800Mhz G3 iBook...are you sure those weren't 800Mhz G4's?

    I would say more around your beginning $379-$450 price.

    $500-550 if it comes with the software and system disks.

    Yeah, since the 800 MHz G4 was the very first rev, there're a lot of those floating around....

    You are right, the $700 one was a G4. I searched again making sure only to include G3 models and this time came up with:

    $474, 610, 379, 431, 525, 379, 441, 379, 379, 569, 407, 629, 379, 425, 565, 410, 450, 499, 379, 474, 459, 474, 379, 509, 450, 510, 510, 379, 635, 379, 430, 661, 379.

    While no one paid $700, four went for over 600 with the highest being $661.

    I would agree with that.
