    Hi! I just bought a 15" PB 1GHZ with some slight cosmetic damage, but both hinges are still in tact. It has 512mb of ram and APX.

    What do you think a good selling price or the value of it is?

    Thank you so much!

    Yea 700ish is about right I would think. Considering a 1ghz emac is about 400-500 ish

    To me the screen looks like its in really good shape, no dead pixels. I'm pretty sure it has the superdrive and it'll have Tiger on it (once I have time to play with it).

    Also, $700 sounds about right. Maybe a little less considering there are some dings and dents on the exterior. EBAY has them for some different prices ranging from 500ish-800, which isn't bad.

    Thanks for all of your quick input.

    Are there any good modifications to make? I was thinking about getting a good 5400 rpm drive to put in it...

    I've been seeing 1.25 ghz powerbooks going for around $800 on craigslist. If you put it up at that price you may get one hit or two. If not, then lower it to $750 and try again. Beware of scammers that want you to ship!

    I'd totally want a PB, I'm waiting for the price to keep plummeting.

    If there is a superdrive and Tiger, the machine is worth 800 dollars easily. Anything past that and your dreaming. Those Intel's surely wiped out the G4's..

    Oh, I've dealt with craigslist scammers before. I reported one to the IC3. I was sent a money wire transfer confirmation email that was in his name and the addy looked fishy so i googled it and it was an email flagged by the IC3. Sucks to be that scammer, because he gave me is home address and phone number, which i passed right along.

    It's too bad craigslist is soooo contaminated with scammers. It makes it really hard. I don't live in a major craigslist area, my closest large marketplace is NYC and thats 2 hours away...
