    I just sold my Macbook Pro to somebody I know cause It was too much of a computer...I only use it for music and browsing...so now I am thinking something smaller and cheap, cause I wanna wait till Leopard comes out and Ilife and maybe a better Intel Chip...so there is this guy selling me a 12'' powerbook, 1.5 ghz, 1.25 rams and 80 gig hard drive...He is selling it to me for $650.....is this a good deal?...It is in good condition and he has the box and everything

    it sounds like a good deal to me. the powerbook should get you by until leopard and ilife '07 comes out.

    How about save up for it and buy a Penryn MacBook (since you already have a PowerBook G4).

    Your Trade Is A Steal

    That's a steal of a deal if you can pull it off before he understands that. Wow.

    Do The Trade NOW TONIGHT NOW NOW NOW

    The PowerBook is WEAK man. Do the trade before he changes his mind or makes the offer to someone else.

    NOW

    You are killing us with this hanging conclusion man.

    Since he has two MacBooks, trade it in a second.

    Don't Forget The Purchase Receipt And Buy AppleCare

    Don't forget to get his purchase receipt and buy AppleCare right away before you forget. All mobile Macs are fragile so AppleCare is a must. You are about to get a really powerful Mac man./ It's got 2 fricking GB of RAM in it.
