    12.1-inch TFT Display
    1024x768 resolution
    1.5GHz PowerPC G4
    512MB DDR333 SDRAM
    60GB Hard Drive
    NVIDIA GeForce FX
    Go5200 (64MB DDR)
    Full size keyboard
    10/100BASE-T Ethernet
    FireWire 400
    Analog audio in/out
    Mini-DVI out

    These are the specs of a new one on I saw one thats less than a month old. But the only thing thats different i think is that it's not 1.5Ghz. But it's for $1000
    How much do you think it would be worth?

    I assume you mean that it's a rev. C (1.33 GHz) being sold? If so, I think that's an ok price for a lightly used one, depending on RAM and other variables. The more specific you can be, the better advice this forum can give you. The rev. Cs are similar to the (current) rev. Ds, but most notably lack the faster 5400 rpm HDD standard, as well as the slower CPU and a few other things.

    You mention it's less than a month old, but how used is it: what is the case condition, how's the battery life, etc.? Always good to check, though if it's that new there shouldn't be any major problems.
