    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

    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.

    Congrats on your new lappy. How much did you get it for? Did you get a good deal?
  5. macrumors 68040


    The 12" PB is the best machine. I wish it held more ram, tho!
  6. macrumors 68000

    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.

    Geez, $1,250? "Pretty good deal?" Wow, that's pretty up there? I guess you wanted it pretty badly!
  8. macrumors 6502a


    wow, um, you coulda gotta a refurb macbook pro 2.0ghz for like 200 more.... that and the fact that you probably don't have a warranty of any kind...

    I hope it work out for the best and that you enjoy it though.

    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.

    Thats Canadian Dollars. Wow, after all those rants..people still don't know I am canadian
  11. macrumors 68000

    Can anybody comment on this? Its gonna seem like forever until its delivered.
  12. macrumors 68000


    That's still $1,106 = Overpaid IMO. But all the power to ya if you feel it's worth it!
  13. macrumors 68000

    Well, at least it was better than getting ripped off on an iBook from PowerMax.
  14. macrumors 68000

    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)
    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. ;)

    And the maxxed ram...
