I'm looking to sell/trade a Clamshell iBook G3 for a friend. The color is indigo.
-366mhz G3
-10GB HD
-320MB Ram
-Power Adapter (YoYo kind)
-CD-ROM Drive
-FireWire Port
-Battery holds about 2 hour charge (Don't quote me on that one)

It's in pretty good condition overall, some wear and tear, but working fine. No cracks or anything. Will come with ibook, power adapter, and 10.2 installed. The screen is looking pretty good, it's a bit dim, but I think they were all like that, and I'm used to my new Hyundai LCD. The USB port is broken, but all other ports work.

I'm looking to sell this or trade it for something else. I'm listed at ebay under "Sutekidanex" 100% positive feedback.
Thanks! ^_^

does it have any other transfer ports since the usb is broken and does it have a pci card slot, also are you willing to ship to europe and finally how long does your battery last?

I can offer you $50+I can also through in a lightly scratched but fully functional 4GB silver iPod mini with a grey marware beltclipable case+shipping.

He gave it to me this afternoon as an early christmas present, and I have no use for it. :)

just thought i'd chime in as a clamshell owner of a very similar machine (except lime) and they are fantastic - runs Tiger great, even photoshop CS pretty well. i'm almost considering getting in on the bidding of this one too ;)

Sounds sketchy, why do you want to pay $20 more than what I"m offering.. and you're a newbie.

I'm very tempted by this... Do you have any idea how easy it is to get replacement batteries for these? I thought they used to get 5-6 hours on a charge...

I would do it. Just send it out once you cash the money order. Thats what I do.

ummm... you do realize that he said he'd sell it for 20 less than this:rolleyes:

personally I would be jumping all over this if it weren't for the USB issue. The USB on these babies is attached to the logic board, which means that you'd have to replace the entire LB just to get a functional USB port.

However, it does have FW, which is nice

Yeah, I guess you wouldn't really be able to use an external mouse, camera, printer... I mean, it has ethernet 10/100 and a slot to install a network card, as well as the superior firewire port, so not all functionality is lost.

Hi! I am offering $20 more because I no longer own a laptop or computer anymore(And I am afraid that I can lose this with only $180, because others can offer that), and I am focusing on an iBook, especially the snow or indigo ones. I owned a graphite 466, and the color was really unattractive. I traded for a snow, the inverter broke, traded it for a pismo(no battery/optical), then sold it for this. By the way, I use the library for internet.
That's all. I hope its not as scketchy anymore.
Thanks!!!
