    Apple PowerBook G3 (Pismo) with 14.1" TFT LCD

    This is the legendary Pismo, one of the most robust and rugged laptops Apple ever made. it's gotten me through a lot and still has a lot of usable life on it. The system is still remarkably fast for web surfing and general writing (Microsoft Office) and graphics work. It can even run iMovie and interface with digital cameras, etc. The wireless card makes it doubly useful for cafe work and web surfing, or at-home websurfing. The wireless antenna is by far the most signal-receptive antenna Apple has made. There are a few general blemishes and knicks on the plastic casing of the laptop but functionality and internal guts are flawless. There are no dead pixels on the 14" LCD screen.

    I'm asking a reasonable $525+Shipping. I'm asking a lower price than what is typically final prices on eBay. Please, serious inquiries only. You can check my previous seller ratings on

    I just sold a very simular setup on ebay about a month ago and only got $450. Mine had more ram, a cdrw and a bag included. So I hope you can get what you're asking out of it.
