    I have an ibook I bought in January of this year and I would like to sell it and maybe get an intel mac mini or something because honestly 1.33 ghz isn't enough.

    I was wondering how much do you think I could get for it and/or how much I should ask for it. I looked around on ebay and I get mixed selling prices, which is why I'm seeking a value here.

    Here are the stats:

    1.33GHz PowerPC G4
    512K L2 cache @1.33GHz
    512MB memory (DDR333 SDRAM)
    12.1-inch TFT Display
    1024x768 resolution
    ATI Mobility Radeon 9550
    32MB DDR video memory
    40GB Ultra ATA hard drive
    Combo Drive (DVD-ROM/CD-RW)
    Built-in AirPort Extreme
    Built-in Bluetooth 2.0+EDR
    Scrolling Trackpad
    Sudden Motion Sensor
    Microsoft Office 2004 installed
    My iTunes collection of 200+ purchased songs (no idea if that would raise the value but just thought I might add that)

    Thanks in advance,
    Hummer

    I'm trying to sell the same computer, and am finding that the value has fallen through the floor ever since the macbooks came out. Values do vary a lot on ebay, but I think you're looking at around $700. Given that refurbs sell for $800 at apple, it's hard to think it could be worth more than that. Yes, it sucks, I know. :(

    Yea, I'm not even sure my powerbook is worth 700 anymore. Those intel macs are the devil. Oh well. I won't move up till I can't run the newest OS anyways so let's hope it lasts
