    Hi guys,

    I'm considering an upgrade to a MBP and to facilitate such a purchase I am considering selling my Powerbook.

    In all honesty, the laptop hasn't been used very much since its purchase on the 14th Feb 2005. It is absolutely mint-condition (not a single scratch or mark!) and is covered by Applecare (at the time of writing there are 568 days left on the coverage). I have the original packing for the Powerbook, so it would be shipped with all accessories, cables etc, just as it arrived to me when it was new.

    Specs:
    Powerbook G4 1.67GHz 15"
    1GB RAM
    100GB Hard Drive
    128MB VRAM (Can drive 30" ACD)
    SuperDrive
    Backlit Keyboard
    Capable of 'Two-Finger' Scrolling
    Includes Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger and iLife 06 (Discs Included)

    I'm really just interested to see if there is much interest in my machine, if there is I would certainly be willing to sell it. If you are worried about parting with a large sum of cash over the marketplace, I have an ebay account with 100% feedback and I have also sold a Canon 350D Digital SLR Camera to another well-known MacRumors member who I'm sure would be willing to vouch for me (details on request)

    If you're interested, please post or PM me. The going price on ebay seems to be around £700 for a machine without Applecare (unlike mine which is covered by Applecare for another 18 months approx), so if I say £750 as an initial starting figure, but am open to reasonable offers.

    Successfully sold to machappymeal. I would have no problem recommending him to anyone in MacRumors who is buying or selling here on the Marketplace.

    One very happy customer here:) . Am typing this on said Powerbook.

    NATO kindly met up with me for a cash deal. The Powerbook is in stunning condition, an absolute delight. Nato was very friendly and polite throughout the transaction. He kept me informed all of the way and met me on time:p . It was a real pleasure to deal with him and I can recommend him to anyone on these forums.

    Many thanks once again.

    UK prices are often exceedingly different from US prices. Just a heads-up.

    I'll leave that to Nato as it was his sale. I am very happy with the price I paid:)

    I let it go at £600 which was fine for me as we both saved on postage and paypal fees etc, so we both got what we wanted :)

    Had it been a traditional sale, I would have had to sell for £650+ to get the same £600 cash as delivery would have been around £20-25 plus Paypal would have taken a sizeable chunk I'm sure :rolleyes:

    I just bought a computer like that too for around the same price, minus Applecare, but plus another gig of RAM for 1125 (602 pounds). i was happy with it, and love the computer, - excellent condition - plus the battery was still at 93% according to coconut battery.
