    Yeah, $899 sounds about right. That would be the final PowerBook G4 - if anyone wanted a PowerPC system for some reason that would be the one to get.

    Well, looks like my bookstore knows what they're doing then. Darn. :)
    It just looked so cheap, as they also have a 17" version of the same specs for $1,399.

    Only if you resell it to some sucker. Otherwise hell no thats not a deal. You can get a refurbished macbook for around that price which is better in pretty much every category.

    i would say that if you need to run a classic or PPC only app then that is an ok price
