I have been checking this forum for quite a while, and here is my first post... I currently use an ibook G4 (1.33 ghz, 1gb ram, 40g harddrive) and am sort of wanting to upgrade my system mostly because I am running out of HD space. I have been looking at the new aluminum macbook, but all the rev A glitches made me decide to wait until rev B. So, I have been looking for a G4 12", which I have really wanted to own. I take my laptop to work everyday, and it will be a good secondary computer in the future. Also, powerbook's supporting a second display is a big plus, as I am planning to watch TV after they switch from analog to digital. I did check some authorized resellers for used 12" inchers, but they were expensive. Then I happened to find one on craigslist... The guy is selling his 12" G4. It's 1.5 ghz, 1.25 ram, 60gb harddrive with combo drive. 1 extra battery. No applecare (of course). Comes with all the original accessories, including OS discs and the box. Asking price is $650 OBO. I exchanged e-mails with his twice. Apparently he is a local guy using a hotmail account. I did ask for the serial number and he did give it to me. I checked appleserialnumber.com, and found it was made in 2005. He also said the machine has never had any mechanical issues and is in very good condition cosmetically. I have been selling/buying through ebay, but never used craigslist, nor buying a computer from a private seller. 1) Anything I have to be careful about for buying a computer off craigslist? 2) Do you think the deal is legit? Is this a good price for an used powerbook G4 12"? I know it still is a popular model, but knowing i can get a brand-new (white) macbook for $900 or so, $650 sounds a little expensive. Sorry for the lengthy post. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
