    Hello-

    I have a week old white macbook that i'm wanting to trade for a powerbook. My macbook is in excellent condition.

    EDIT: I'm also willing to trade to for a macbook pro. I can include a white 2gb nano that is in mint condition. It comes w/ all accessories including the box and also an agent 18 case. I also have a universal ipod dock w/ all accessories and the box. Also have a mint condition Sony PSP. Comes with all accessories including original box and also a logitech hardcase.

    Macbook
    2.0 Core Duo
    512 Ram
    60 Gig HD
    Superdrive
    Bluetooth/Airport Extreme

    I still have the box and everything that comes with it.

    I would like to get a 15 or 17 inch powerbook. Let me know what you have. I have done some trades here on macrumors in the past and I also have perfect feedback on ebay under rhelfrey. I'm located in Arizona if you are interested.

    I doesn't have to be the lastest revision. It just has to have a superdrive. Please someone take me up on this quick

    thanks

    I have a 15" PB I might be interested in trading. It's a Rev. D, but let me know if you want details.

    I also have a Rev. D PowerBook that I would be interested in trading if you don't get any Rev. E. offers. Specs in sig. Still has ~2 years left on Applecare and is in near-perfect condition with all original packaging and everything.

    Uh oh, looks like we might need to compete. :D

    <defensive>
    Mine may not have any AppleCare, but it's got 1.5GB of RAM!
    </defensive>

    ;)

    Same specs otherwise, all original packaging, cables, docs, disks, etc. Hardware in pristine condition.

    Mine has 2 GB, double HA!

    But still, too bad this one isn't black, I would be all over that like silver on a powerbook.

    1GB stick of RAM from a guy @ macnn.com: $80
    Sale of one 512MB stick of RAM someplace: +$35

    Applecare already purchased vs. unavailable: Priceless

    ;) :p

    I'm just screwing with ya. OP doesn't want a Rev. D PowerBook, so it probably doesn't matter. And if he does decide to go with one, at least now he has some choice. This was just already a trade I was interested in from my FT thread, so I thought I would give myself another shot. I won't fight you for it terribly much if it comes down to it.

    Well.. um.. mine was formally owned by Steve Jobs himself and it's actually the only PowerBook G5 in existence!


    Austin: Really?
    Dr. Evil: No, not really. I can't back that up.


    :p

    Same here, I really don't even expect to generate interest from the OP.

    I think it is funny that we all have the same exact computer, and the OP is looking for a Rev E.

    i've got a final rev 15" sent you a PM.

    i'll consider this, but to be honest i too would've preferred black.

    and that means ill have to buy 2GB ram, and a bigger HD and im already broke right now to begin with. lol!

    i'll think it over though (i too rely on one very important non-universal app.. you guessed it. photoshop. ), specs are in my sig btw.

    there is no such thing as a rev. E 15" AlBook.
    The 17" had 5 revisions:
    1 Ghz
    1.33
    1.5
    1.67
    1.67 hi-res

    the 15" had 4 revisions:
    1/1.25 Ghz
    1.33/1.5
    1.5/1.67
    1.67 hi-res

    So the OP is looking for a rev. D 15" powerbook or rev. E 17" powerbook.

    For the most part, the 15"er is considered to have never had a 'rev A'. It is usually referred to by the generation of the 12/17 that accompanied it. (At least, everyone I've talked to does it that way...)

    yeah i thought that i would get more interest. i guess it's because i need a superdrive and some of the 15 inch powerbooks don't have them. i would even do the 17 inch if the specs were right. i would like the hi-res screen but it doesn't have to be.

    alright one last shot. i have some great offers from some of ya's here on MR and I was just checking to see if there was anyone else wanting this great macbook. Just checking my options before I make my final decision. I would also consider trading this macbook for an ibook/powerbook and a mac mini. One of the 2 must have a superdrive though.
