    I agreed to sell my 12" Powerbook 1.5GHZ, 80GB hard drive, 1.25GB Ram, and incase carrying case for the notebook all for $525.

    The machine has Leopard loaded on it and has slight pitting on the palm rest, but otherwise is in pretty good condition for a 3 year old laptop.

    Only thing is the battery doesn't hold a charge for longer than 3 minutes.

    Does anyone think I can be getting more for this?

    I'd say every year the price drops by a third to half of the previous year? So yeah that sounds about right... Also you said it has a pit and software is not worth anything because people erase the drives.

    Nah, seems about right. The battery'll cost him $100 anyway.

    On ebay someone is selling one for $565 and it looks spankin' new. I'd say $525 is very good for a computer with a dent and a dead battery.
