    I've been considering letting this go because I just don't seem to be using it as much as I used to, and it seems like a 12" PB or iBook would better suit my needs at this point. It is in immaculate condition: I use an iSkin at all times, wipe it down with iKlear every week, and it never leaves my house without its Tucano sleeve (which I would include) or its bag (SpireUSA Endo). It has gone travelling only once, to Maui about 4 months ago. Other than that it has gone to and from work in the conditions I desribed (though I haven't taken it to work with me the last 2 months or so).

    What I would be looking for, with cash added by the other person... :)

    12" Powerbook
    1.33GHz or higher
    60GB HDD or higher
    Superdrive preferred (though will consider one with a combo, no problems)

    12" iBook Preferably from this current revision, but open to offers.
    1.2Ghz or higher
    40GB HDD or higher
    AE (a must)

    Other things in addition to either the PB or iBook that could replace some or all of the cash might include:

    iPod
    4G or later
    20GB or higher
    Photo doesn't matter

    LCDs
    20" Dell Flat Panel
    24" Dell Flat Panel (I would likely end up having to add cash on my part for this)
    20" Apple Cinema (same with this)

    I've bought and sold on MR a few times (pammy_spyce and wnameth can act as references), as well as on eBay (my feedback: http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback&userid=stonyc96&ssPageName=STRK:ME:UFS).

    I'll post pictures later on tonight after I get home from work. I hope this is detailed enough, but if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask. :)

    Couple things I did forget to mention...

    I bought this in February of this year, but did not get Applecare... there's still plenty of time to purchase Applecare though. I can also buy the Applecare for you at the Educational price if you wanted it done that way.

    No dead pixels, no scratches, it is in pristine condition.

    I have 10.4.2 on it now, and will ship it with a clean erase/install and all appropriate OS X disks/upgrades.

    No other software will be provided, because I'll need it on my potential machine. :)
