    I've got an IBM T40 that I'd trade for the Powerbook. Don't know how fair that exchange is or who comes out ahead, though.

    IBM T40
    1.5ghz Centrino
    512mb Ram
    16x DVD Drive
    40gb 5400rpm Hard Drive
    Built in Wireless (B/G)
    Radeon 7500 32mb Video
    Keyboard Light built in
    UltraNav Touchpad and Touchstick both
    Power Cable, etc

    It came to me with no OS installed. The laptop is in great shape as it's been my wife's computer and she's a neat freak.

    Laptop in my signature?

    It's got 4 USB, which is considered good for a laptop. 15" screen. Comes with carrying case. Laptop would be in original box, packaging, etc.

    I just looked up the warranty for this machine on IBM.com and it looks like the warranty expires 3-24-2007. Looks like it was a 3-year warranty, which would put the manu. date in 2004. Also, it has a license on the bottom for XP Pro, so I could install that for you prior to sending it, but I have no original discs to include.

    Honestly, IBM laptops are as nice as Apple laptops, and as much care goes in to their design. They are also rugged. I would do the trade for the IBM laptop. If for some reason that doesn't work out then please message me as I have several desktop PCs I am willing to trade, not to mention cash, a Nintendo DS, and an upgraded Blue G3.

    I don't think Bill would mind if you burn him a copy of the XP disks, as the license is the thing that matters!

    Make sure you're including the original discs and licenses for the software, or else it should not be included.

    I have a souped up AMD 64 3000+ desktop in an antec sonata case, with 1gb of high quality ddr pc3200 ram (with head spreaders and 1 port free for future expandability). A new 80gb 7200rpm Maxtor hard drive, 52X cdrw/16X dvd, radeon 9800 pro 128mb card, and a nice quiet cpu cooler that cost over $50 alone. I am interested in your ipod mini + powerbook. I can add in an almost new canon ip4000 printer too :)
