no applecare, and i'm sorry, but your machine isn't powerful enough for what i need.Winstonp said:any applecare?
interested in trading for my machine?
I'll be in london, then leeds, then glasgow starting next week
Your translation isn't exactly valid though, as the UK prices are always higher. The second hand value is based on the original price. Though you're right that the depreciation will be the same on both sides of the pond, you won't find an iBook like his going for £400-450 in the UK.Daveway said:Your price is a bit steep (US $1300). iBooks just like yours are going for about US$850-$900 on ebay.
In which case £700 doesn't sound so incredibly unreasonable.thequicksilver said:Your translation isn't exactly valid though, as the UK prices are always higher.

The original price for that machine would have been near enough £1000 (my sig should tell you how I know this ) so a little international perspective is required.
sell an illegal product? Or do you mean buy a cheap copy?j_maddison said:if you have a copy of tiger, try putting that on it. it will boost the price. just state in the message that your not sending the disks
So i sell the legal one, and then keep an illegal version? correct me if I'm wrong, but i thought it was one Mac per OS box.j_maddison said:Hell no, I mean buy a cheap copy! A few are floating around on the net. Just dont pay over the odds for it. And you can then keep the copy for your self!
me thinks it would be better to purchase a new version of tiger for myself, and not change the old one at all. And i don't have any disks to start off with, so i would buy tiger for my old one, and then continue with my current system on the new one.Reanimation_LP said:What he is describing here is aganist forum rules. You could end up banned for doing that.
One thing your forgetting, he's not in Canada, He's in the UK. In the UK thats a pretty good deal for a current model. The only people who wouldnt think so are those who can get an edu discount from their university network. Hmm then again, I think even a student would still think this is a good deal.wnameth said:you can get a new ibook from apple for 1250 CAD, if i am correct your 500 pounds works out to 1150 or so, 100 more dollars and you can get a newer one.
I'm tempted too, but i'm wondering whether to buy a mac mini and keep the ibook, or sell the ibook, not get the mac mini, but get a 15" powerbook.j_maddison said:p.s e-bay it, I'm sure you'll get a really good price on e-bay
