    I have the opportunity to buy a G4 powerbook titanium with following specs:

    1 Ghz Processor
    15" screen
    superdrive
    512 MB SDRAM
    Mac OS 10.4
    60GB HD
    Airport

    but also there's some damage, one of the hinges is kind of busted and there's a dent in the case.

    is this worth 200$?

    I'm just buying to last me till the montevino update because I really need a notebook atm.

    thanks in advance!!

    Yes. A new Ti hinge is like $40 on eBay. Many 667 (DVI)s still go for $300+.

    For $200 that is a heck of a steal. I would definitely jump on this deal if you're looking for something for the time being. I would even buy this to resale for a profit if I didn't need it.

    That's not just a deal, it's a steal. A 1GHz G4 for that price is a good find.

    It a good deal. Even if you sell it for parts you would make out better..
