    How much do yous guys think this iBook g4 is worth?
    12"
    256mb ram
    CD-ROM (no burner)
    30gb hdd

    The computer is in good condition. No scratches, no problems. However I have heard the hard drive making some strange noises from time to time.
    Thanks!

    If the hard drive is ok, I'd say around $300-325ish based on current eBay & Craiglist prices for that iBook with processor, memory, hard drive...

    Sorry forgot to post the speed. It's 800MHz.

    Yeah, you're right, if the hard drive is making noises that is a problem. Is the hard drive in the front of the machine kind of under the track pad? That seems to be where the sounds are coming from.
    Can I look up the serial # and find out if applecare was bought for it?

    Also forgot to mention - it has OS X 10.3.9 and no extra software.

    $30 MAX

    BTW, this should be in the Marketplace under a feeler. This is abuying thread, not selling but then youve not got enough posts to merit posting in the marketplace.

    $30? Are you serious?
    Sorry I asked in the wrong section. I am looking to BUY this machine and I wanted some ideas on how much to offer. I've never heard of a "feeler" thread, I'll do that next time.

    I think he meant $300. Oh, and you should skip the iBook and buy my Mac Pro! : )

    $350 if you're lucky. I'm thinking more around $300 like everyone else.
