    Hello, I'd been searching off and on for a PowerBook G4 12" for college and for when I go out. I want one computer to stay at home, so I don't have to stop everything when I want to take my computer out and about. While the MacBook Pro is pretty light, the PowerBook G4 would be a lot more portable and easier to take around. Anyway, an oportunity may arise in June where I can get the following PowerBook G4 for between $250-300:
    1.33GHz PPC G4
    1.25GB RAM
    80GB HDD
    12" screen
    Combo drive
    Airport Extreme
    Very good cosmetic condition

    I haven't been keeping up on the retail value of PowerBooks, but this looks like a good deal to me, especially for around $300. I know that the offer is legitimate as well so there are no worries about that. What do these PowerBooks typically go for?

    They usually are around 700 depending on condition. That would be a very good deal. Almost too good..

    I know the guy personally, so I know that he wouldn't try to con me. And wow, it's an even better deal than I thought it was.

    Go for it, the 12" PowerBook G4 is a very nice computer and you are certainly getting a very good deal for one.

    The 1.33 is the one before the last one (1.5) and that sounds like a good deal. I got a 1.0 for $450 so I guess he could get $500+ for it on the open market - so whether you keep that quiet from him is up to you..
