I recently bought a used iBook G4 from a friend for 250, but came without a charger and the install discs. This iBook runs perfectly and the only downside is there are a few cosmetic scratches on the outside. This is the 1.42 GHz PowerPC G4, 512 MB version with the cdrw/dvdrw superdrive. Made in mid to late 2005 After buying this laptop, I immediately bought a charger from a mac dealership for about 120, and ordered the install disc's from mac online for 50. I have used this laptop for about 6 months and the battery has recently died, so I have been thinking about purchasing a new battery from the mac dealership for 130. What i would like to know is if buying this laptop was actually a good deal considering I have spent a total of 430 on a used laptop and pretty soon it will be 560 when I purchase a new battery? I would also like some tips in buying new iBook batteries without breaking the bank (well for me at least) iBook G4 14in 1.42 Ghz FEATURES: 1.42 Ghz 512MB of Ram 60GB Hard Disk Super Drive (DVDRW/CDRW/DVD/CD) Airport Card Installed Internal Bluetooth thanks in advance.
