    What is a seven year old G-4 PowerBook worth?
    Needs new hard drive, otherwise it is in very good shape the repair told me.
    Charger plug etc. Maybe a battery.
    2 GB RAM.:rolleyes:

    Need more info (year of computer, how much GHz, screen size, condition of case, etc) before we can give you a better price point.

    I will say this, if the computer case is all good except for the hard drive and battery then I might say around a few hundred dollars.

    15" 1.5 GHz superdrive DVD drive wireless airport extreme, had a 80gb hard drive. & upgraded to 2 GB ram. Had to look up old paperwork.
    Case is near excellent!, as the lady whom took out the drive mentioned.

    Around $400 in working order.

    Or around $1000, depending on how you look at it. We have an original titanium G4 with a 400 MHz processor. It runs great in spite of being ten years old and does web, email and such just fine. The sum I came up with is how much it would cost to replace it with a new Mac laptop.
