    Sounds like a pretty good deal to me *but* I might consider waiting till after MWSF and see if the Powerbooks drop in price.

    The seller might be trying to get rid of it before MWSF to get it's highest value.

    I think its a good deal, if you look on ebay, they are going for more than that. I would would take that deal, but not untill after macworld, cause there is a chance that the price could go even lower for you.

    Cool, thanks for the responses. I've been tossing around the idea of getting a laptop... but unfortunately I can't justify getting one now, especially at $900.

    Thanks again.
