    I have a friend that is selling his iBook G4 14", 1.33Ghz, 512RAM, 60GB HDD, WiFi/Bluetooth/Modem/Ethernet/Combo Drive. Warrenty is going to expire in 6 months. He is asking $900.

    I have seen the laptop its in perfect condition, no dead pixels or anything. Few light scratchs on the bottom.

    Would this be an ok deal?

    Thanks

    Yeah, that's a good deal. It's $1,049 for it on Apple's Refurb site.

    Thanks. I was thinking it was a atleast an ok deal. I know the new ones will be out soon with the Intel chip. But this one will cove my needs and more, and I wont go into debt buying a Apple ;)

    If it's still within it's 1-year warranty, I would suggest purchasing the apple care protection plan. It would give you an extra two years of coverage on the 6 months, plus it would come with phone tech support.

    Yes I plan on buying the protection plan.

    As far as the MB Pro goes I like it. However I just don't want to spend that much. When this will do everything I need for half the price. But it is very cool, maybe I will hit the lotto.

    Well I bought. My friend lives in another state so I should have it on Tuesday. I use a Mini at work and my husband has a powerbook g4. So am not a super noob. But I am looking forward to only having linux and unix machines in my house. I already feel safter :)

    It's a great machine with decent mobile power and looks. I'm still the cutting edge, not bleeding edge :D , tech guy. I'm holding out for whatever Intel iBook comes out.

    If I was stuck with a G4 I'd go with that iBook.
