    I'd say that's quite a good price considering it's in Canadian dollars. Though I'm not so sure I'd recommend the Titanium PowerBook. Almost every Titanium PowerBook I've seen has had problems with the hinge and needed to have the hinge replaced.

    I say bad price. For 867 MHz and 40 gig drive? I think you could do better.
    I mean, I figure I could sell my 12" iBook for $550.

    EDIT: And Canadian Dollars are worth more than US dollars these days.

    It does sound quite alot... although from my experience of TiBooks, they are really nice computers. Mine's been dropped and had water spilt on it. It runs 10.4 perfectly, and it's only a 500Mhz processor. At least with an 867 you could run Leopard.

    Maybe try and haggle the price down a bit?
