I might be interested, would you be interested in trades for any of this stuff?

Also, why are you wanting to sell?


Thanks,

allison.
Nothing really catches my eye there, sorry :(, also I bought it out of a fetish you could say, and with my PB I really don't need two comps, although this is just a feeler so idk if I'll even sell/trade for sure.

So are you looking for what you paid for it, $375?
I paid $349 then I added a brand new unopened battery ($80), a new keyboard ($15) and a 512mb memory upgrade ($90) and an Airport Card ($120).

Yeah, if a mac user wants to get their mother started on computers/macs/internet, etc. Many people do it.

This comes with Tiger Disks right?

was this iBook subject to a motherboard replacement during the apple recall a few years ago?

This iBook comes with no Discs, I will install a clean copy of Tiger but unless you have a license you're legally required to erase the hardrive.

This revision of 800MHz's were not part of this recall due to the Next-Gen codenames motherboards in them (leading up to the iBook G4)

yes they were, I used to own one, and after four motherboards replaced I negotiated a new machine. I would only consider this if it had been but either it hasn't or amacgenius simply doesn't know ... it may be one of the machines that has not exhibited the issue but most iBook G3's qualify for replacement not just the ones leading up to the G4. I don't know if yours is but the only way I would believe you is to check the SN against that page.

and the software thing is way shady and form of piracy in my book because it basically either means you expect the buyer to pirate or purchase $120 disks

amacgenius never really responded ... his friend did. I would be happy if you PM'd me the S/N or sent me a screen cap of the S/N in the about mac dialog ...
