    Just had to share this with you all. Yesterday I came into purchasing a PowerBook G4 17inch 1.67GHZ, model A1107. This is an amazing machine this far, I have yet to own a laptop with this much screen real estate and I love it. Only has a couple of issues such as a loose power connection and some small scratches plus needs a new battery. When comparing it to my other PowerBooks (12 inch 1.5GHZ / 15 inch 1.67) it dwarfs them both. I have also noticed it feels cooler in operation.[​IMG]

    Nice! Wish I could find one that worked and/or didn't have a hundred different issues. No luck so far...

    I love my 17in, it's literally a desktop in my lap. Lots of luck with yours. Also, congrats on the AluTriumvirate, I had that going until I killed my 15in by accident. Now all you need is a TiBook!

    Very jealous, I miss my 15in Alu greatly. I have come to the conclusion that 15in is the perfect screen size for laptops.

    I find the 15 inches are much more plentiful on kijiji and Craigslist, people overprice them thinking they are just MacBook pros with a changed name!

    I don't need the whole machine, I just need a logic board, but I think it might just be easier to buy a whole new machine at this point! :eek:
