    I have a G4 Ti Powerbook G4 400mhz, 1 gig ram, 70 gig hd, running leopard.

    It does have a couple cosmetic issues, but runs great. I also have 3 batteries total for it and the price would fit well under your budget.

    Let me know if you are interested.

    I have a 12" iBook G4 1.2Ghz. It has 768MB of ram, a (newly replaced) 80GB 5400 rpm hard drive, combo drive, bluetooth. Comes with original 10.4 disks.

    There are some very minor dings in the case near the optical drive, from when I took it apart to replace the hard drive. It comes with the original box and all accessories. I have a Marware Sportfolio II case for it as well.

    Let me know what you would offer.

    I know, but I figured I would let you know of my offer. I know when I look for something for good deal I am sometimes willing to pay more if it's worth it.

    ibook G4

    I have a 12" iBook G4 1.33 with 512 ram, bluetooth and wireless. The trackpad had stopped working and some of the keys were broken, so I just had the top case and keyboard replaced and now all is fine. In great condition, although it does seem like it takes longer to boot up than it used to. Let me know if you're interested. Looking for $425 shipped.

    i think offering him something that is 200 dollars out of his price range is... pointless. If you can get 650 on ebay, then do it fast, before people catch on to getting a macbook for 100 dollars more.

    I guess I'll throw my laptop out there:

    12" iBook G4
    1.33ghz Processor
    Combo Drive
    Scrolling Trackpad and Sudden Motion Sensor
    1gb RAM (2 x 512 sticks running dual channel)
    40gb HDD
    Everything works flawlessly
    Airport Extreme
    Bluetooth 2.0
    Battery lasts for 3.5/4 hours still
    MacAlly AC Adapter

    Comes with standard restore disks that had 10.4. Runs iWork '08 just fine and Office '08 just fine as well.

    $500 shipped

    OK sounds good but if you change your mind I use Office 04 on it all the time and it performs very well. No idea about iwork though.

    I think you are mis-informed, the original discs are included, Tiger/iLife '08 Discs. If the buyer wants it reformatted before it comes to them I would be more then willing.

    I have a laptop with the same specs that JacobC has. One problem tho. The screen is cracked. Everything else works just fine. You can still read the screen, but it has bled a lot. I was going to buy a replacement screen but i want to get a imac. I'll do 450 shipped if your interested.
