I've got a 15" PowerBook that I bought in January 2004 brand new from the Walden Apple Retail store, I recently bought a 12" PowerBook from a friend so I figure it's time to unload this great machine:

Specs:
1.25ghz G4
15" Screen
Aluminum Casing
Superdrive
512mb RAM
80GB 4800(don't quote me on that)RPM HD
Bluetooth (1)
Airport Extreme
AppleCare until December '06 or January '07 (I don't remember, but I can check)


This machine retailed for around $2765 brand new with extras from the store and has been used and still runs great, comes with original box, manuals and a fresh install of Panther (on the software restore discs).

To be real I'd like to get around $1200-$1350 but if that's too high I'll take offers. I have 100% positive feedback under digitialnirvana, I've also dealt with others on this forum such as doucy2, and fender83.

EDITED - Price.

I've done business with amacgenius and he is a very honest and communicative seller.

You shouldn't joke like that. Someone might see that quick and think mxlews really meets your description and not deal with him. I know I would be mad if someone did that to me!

DARN IT! You live so close to me, too. I would have gladly came to Buffalo or meet half way to pay $1200 for this. 15" SUPERDRIVE powerbook?! 1.25ghz ALU?! Now I wish I didn't order my iBook. DARN IT!

Dangit, had I not just won an auction for a 1-week old new model 14" ibook ($1000!!!), I'd be all over this.

If this is around next week after I get the ibook, I may be interested depending on if the ibook cuts it or not.

Pics? Physical condition?

Are you able to post pictures? What sort of shape is it in... any significant scuff marks or scratches? How is the display... any marks or white spots?

Thanks!

Deal pending for $1155. Will take higher offers though.
man $1155 is a rip off for you larry. i wouldn't accept less than $1500 for mine. ;)

but i have 1GB of RAM, but still. the only thing the newer models of the 15" offer over yours is a about 400MHZ (for top of the line), and that, my friend, isn't a worth another $800. Don't settle for $1155. My friend just paid $2000 for a new 15" with the same GPU, an extra 250MhZ (which i can't tell at all), and the new trackpad (which works on your model if you use the terminal hack to enable it or install tiger).

Of course, i think all the powerbooks are overpriced for what you get in terms of power, and i think only a fool would buy a new powerbook now outside of the 12" maybe.

You either misplaced the decimal there or you aren't offering 1155.00 plus.

Let's try this:

Look at where the duck's mouth is pointing!!!

WHICH OF THE FOLLOWING IS CORRECT?

A. 12 > 1155
B. 12 < 1155
C. 12 = 1155
D. Microsoft is a decent company.

The correct answer is indeed B
