    Yay, only 3 to 5 more days! I recently aquired a PowerBook G4 12 inch from heyloo. He has been very nice, and hasn't scammed me :). I am really excited. Its specs:

    PowerPC G4 1.33 GhZ
    12 inch:)
    100Gb 7200 RPM(upgraded from 60 gb 4200 RPM)
    1.25 Gb Ram(MAXXED)
    Shinza Zeroshock case
    Shipped With FedEx™
    RadTech Keboard/Screen Protector
    DiskWarrior
    Tiger


    I am so happy. Every day I seem to want to call FedEx and ask "Where is it?"

    This is, going to replace my iMac. I shall give the iMac to my bro.

    I had the exact same computer except with less ram and a 4200 60 gig hard drive. I loved it so much. I still miss it, but I bought another powerbook at a steal of a price and had to sell the 12 inch for money. Have fun with it.

    The 12" PB is the best machine. I wish it held more ram, tho!

    I got it for $1250 with a BT Mouse, Shinza Case, KB and Screen protector, and an additional wireless ant.

    And the Ram and HDD upgrades.

    Pretty Good deal.

    Ouch

    That's a bit on the high side. With those specs it averages around $900-$975 on eBay. I sold my PB 15" with 1.5GHZ and 100GB 7.2K drive for $1100.00 last month.

    Well, at least it was better than getting ripped off on an iBook from PowerMax.

    Here are the specs he gave me directly:

    Powerbook G4 12"
    CPU Speed: 1.33GHz
    RAM: 1.25 GB (Max)
    HDD: 100GB Seagate 7200rpm (my previous HDD died, so I 'just' replaced into this HDD)
    Superdrive
    Graphics - 64MB GeForce FX Go5200
    ***Battery*** My model qualified for the Battery Recall Program recently launched by Apple. I made the exchange so it's running on 'brand new' set of battery! :)

    How about I throw in a Bluetooth (non-mighty mouse) mouse, a Shinza case, and RadTech screen protector (that goes between the screen and the keyboard. It has a 'Powerbook' engraving(?) on it by RadTech).



    He also threw in an external wireless antenna and little silicon legs that protect around the screen...

    Well with that fast HD, new battery and Shinza case, I think it's worth it in Canadian dollars. ;)
