I'll be honest with you, I got my clamshell by just being lucky and finding one on ebay with a bad hard drive that was going for a good price, and I paid about $30 for it plus shipping. It seems that they have increased in price dramatically in the past few years. I would just wait for one to show up with a good price or try bidding on one.i would like to buy an iBook in working condition. But when I searched at ebay, I noted that the price is around $100-$200, some even higher than that. So I would like to know the fair price for that. Thank you so much!
I'm going to have to go shopping for Cubes. Always wanted one and it'd make a great OS 9 machine.Under $100 is fair/a good deal depending on what Mac you are looking at. Cubes, G5 Quads, iMac/iBook G3s, and iMac G4s are becoming increasingly expensive and harder to find. On the desktops, shipping prices are extremely high, and people are listing the lower-spec 15" iMac G4s for the same prices as the 20" G4s because they don't know what they are doing, which leads to price increases.
Cube prices have really taken a hit in the past few months. I have found multiple cubes on eBay going for $50 or less, while last year, getting one for around $100 like I did was a steal.
So if You are well used to AZERTY maybe you have a spare QWERTY(äöü)-KB in exchange for another AZERTY...One word of advise, most Clamshells purchased in Europe (with the exception of UK and Spain) will have AZERTY keyboards which - believe me, take some getting used to. I have several Clamshells with UK and AZERTY keyboards, and when using the latter, I always have the French AZERTY keyboard selected by default, so WYSIWYG.
