    Hey there -- I have a PowerBook 3400c (Pre-Kanga)

    Specs:

    200MHz 603e PowerPc
    80 MB RAM (64MB chip from someone on the board -- that alone is worth $60, otherwise it would have to go back down to 48MB)
    5GB HD (recently upgraded from 2GB)
    CD-ROM module
    Floppy Module
    A/C Adapter
    Battery that was reconditioned at recently got 1 hr 12 minutes life before I got bored with timing it and just shut it off.
    OS 9.2.2 (max is 9.1, I then used OS Helper to get it to 9.2.2)
    Built-in ethernet, also has modem adapter)

    I am not quite sure what a fair price would be, but we could work that out.

    I was too scared to try XPostFacto with it, though it is compatible.

    Pics... gimme a bit here :D Its in OUTSTANDING condition. The trackpad works great, keyboard is nice with all keys responsive and none missing. It is probably the speediest classic laptop you could get. It also has a very nice screen.

    Compared to my 1400cs that I have this screen on the 3400c is like HDTV compared to an old black-and-white TV.

    What is on your trade list? Although, I am kinda looking for cash straight up.

    Floppy is internal, hot-swappable with CD-ROM.

    Also, a PAL gamecube won't do me good in the U.S., plus I have an NTSC one anyway. None of the other items look good, how much cash would you be willing to pay for it?

    Make an offer on the clamshell in my signature. Also, how much would you estimate it would cost to ship it to you? I would probably be willing if you paid. Not sure if I want to sell, but make an offer.

    Please note the change to Ethernet and Infrared. There is no "ethernet infrared" port.

    And in terms of pictures, I took a bunch tonight finally of this one, the ones for skoker, and the ones for max, so tommorow *should* be my uploading day.
