    It is an A1138! Package includes 2 batteries (one 12 cycles), two chargers, Wireless Mighty Mouse, original AirPort Express and a sealed stereo connection kit and a bunch of disks I haven't checked yet.

    The bad news: another sub par packaging job. Single wall box with everything thrown with packing peanuts. The back of the book is dented near the power jack and on the hinge. Is it really that difficult to package things?

    Glad that it did turn out to be an A1138!

    I think you got that one for a steal, package damage not withstanding.

    I've done a little bit of body work on AlBooks. It's actually not that hard to do, although it's difficult to leave no trace. Use scraps of cloth or leather to protect the area along with non-marring tools like wood and nylon or brass hammers.

    Lucky! That is one of the only PowerBooks with the I2 northbridge, supporting DDR2 and the 7448.

    Nice find.

    I'm so tired of terrible packing jobs from eBay sellers. Literally I'm dissuaded from using eBay because of this very fact.
