    I have the powermac G3 in my sig, It has a USB2 PCI card, and 2x40GB 7200RPM HDs. I'd like to trade it for a powerbook G3 Pismo, it needs a working DVD drive and working battery/charger. PM me or IM me offers, thanks!

    Edit: The Powermac is a Rev. B, so no hard drive Issues. And I'm only interested in a pismo, or perhaps a 466MHz iBook G3 or newer.

    Do you think this would be a fair trade?

    I think its *Ok*, but i don't think someone will trade a laptop of higher MHZ for a desktop.... buy hey, you never know.

    well a 400MHz G3 pismo would be a perfectly fine trade with me. And the laptop they gave me would have less RAM, HD, Graphics, no USB2, so they would in the end have a much faster system, and I would have a much more portable system, although slower

    ah yeah, thats an important one, PCI USB2 card, 4 ports external and 1 port internal (for a Bluetooth or 802.11B/G adaptor) esp. nice to have if you use an iPod/external HD or a USB Key
