    I've read a lot of people suggesting buying parts at pbfixit.com, but has anyone here sold their computer to pbfixit? I got a nice quote on a dying PowerBook but they want me to send it in, let them inspect it, and then trust them to send a check back... I can understand why they do it in that order, but I can't help but be suspicious. Does anyone have any experience on this?

    PB FixIt Success Story

    We've purchased hundreds of laptops from customers. I've found that customers appreciate having a trustworthy company they can sell their Mac to. We make the process straightforward and simple.

    Here's a customer testimonial: "The past transaction worked very well with the G3 Wallstreet I sent you and I wanted to thank you for the easy shipping and your professional approach. I have 2 other G3 PowerBooks with "issues" that you may be interested in giving me a price on buying." -P. M.

    Here's how the process works:
    1) You tell us about your computer here:
    https://www.pbfixit.com/utils/Sell/sell_track.php
    2) We reply with a price we'll pay you for your computer.
    2) If you agree, we send you a pre-paid shipping label via e-mail.
    3) You ship the computer to us within 7 days using the label.
    4) When we receive your computer as described, we send you a check for the agreed amount.
    Note: If for some reason the computer is not as described, we simply send it back to you, no charge.

    Feel free to contact us if you have more questions.

    pbfixit is a pretty respectable company...I think you're guaranteed that they won't scam you.

    This is a sweet site. I've been wanting/debating if I should sell my old Titanium PowerBook G4...it was my first Mac, so it kind of has sentimental value, but it's dead, so what really would I do with it? Plus, I'm low on money, and I'm thinking about selling my current PowerBook as well, since I don't really need two computers, I primarily use my iMac G5 for everything anyway.

    Anyway, just wanted to say that. I am waiting to hear back from the company to see how much they would offer me for the two 'Books.
