    There are no major flaws. but it is a little dirty and has few scratches. but the screen for the most part is very nice. no dead pixels that i can see.
    if i wipe the hard drive, how much money could i get for this ibook?

    Well your battery life seems to be at about 50% of its original full charge mAh. And depending on the size of your hard drive, I would say you could expect around $650 for this laptop. This also depends on if you have the original box, CDs, Apple OEM charge cable, etc etc.

    Cheers

    Check out the guide on Mac2Sell. That should point you in the general direction.

    the box is long gone.
    but i have the OEM charger and the extension for that charger.
    i have the book and all the cd's too.
    plus a wireless mouse i bought with it.

    Hard drive has 55.77 Gb capacity.

    so a new battery is probably a good thing to buy, but other that that... would it be a stretch to say $700?

    I would say $350. It's possible to buy an older Macbook for $500 so I wouldn't expect too much for an iBook.

    Yeah, sorry... I do rather think that's a stretch. You might get lucky (i.e. exploit an ignorant buyer), but it's not a fair price, even when things like eBay fees are taken into account.
