    Hello,

    I been racking my brain on trying to locate information on an outdated Powerbook that I have picked up recently as an extra computer. I purchased it from a friend who sells refurbished mac computers.

    My question is....How much does this hunk of crap go for???

    It's a:
    PowerBook G4 12 inch notebook
    Mac OS X 10.2.8 ( I NEED TO UPDATE THE SOFTWARE)
    MEMORY 640 MB
    PROCESSOR 867 MHz PowerPC G4
    40 GB HARD DRIVE

    Can someone assist me please!

    Since it is a hunk of cr@p. I'll pay $20 to cover shipping if you send it my way. :)

    http://www.mac2sell.net/ that site should help with a base value.

    Look at completed eBay auctions for a high end value.

    $300 is probably the most you'll get. That's the base model 12" powerbook. The ram was upgraded I see. Battery life and accessories can bring the price up.

    Yeah, $300 or near is OK. Apparently they have a couple of shortcomings over the next 1GHz model. Still very useable though.
