    All, I may be handed down a 17" PB with the following specs (I am guessing at these as I don't have the computer in front of me). 1 Gig ram, 1.33ghz processor, super drive, airport, BT, 80 gig hard drive.

    I think it is a rev b or rev c G4 PB. It also has a second battery.

    If it is in fact handed down to me, I would like to sell it. I don't like the size of the 17" and I would like to pick up a mid range macbook.

    Would $600-$700 be out of the question or is that too much?

    Thanks for the input.

    I wouldn't quite say double. I would say it is worth around $900-1000 tops.

    I recently purchased, a similar machine from the US:

    1.33Ghz,
    15"
    512MB Ram,
    60GB HD,
    COMBO Drive,
    Airport + BT,

    I got this for a total of $550.

    You might get more than $900-$1000 but I doubt it.

    Thanks, David

    from someone who knows computers, you'll probably get around $900. on eBay or from someone who doesn't know much about computers (or Apple computers, to be more specific) you might be able to get around $1100.

    I think 1100 is too high. I picked up the PB in my sig for $1050 on eBay of all places. So you know I paid too much. I'd say $850

    Thanks everyone. Sounds like about $800-$900 is the sweet spot on this one.

    That price range would seem about right to me. :)



    Oh btw, if it is a 1.33Ghz PowerBook G4, then it would a revision b model. :)
