Before you get laughed off the planet, they are PowerBooks and not MacBooks. It really irks me when I'm looking for a PowerBook and an "Intel PowerBook" shows up. Same for a "MacBook with a G4 processor."macbook g3
Not 30, just 5You need to post 30 times before you can PM, I wasn't aware of that.
My Skype is on my profile also.
PowerBook G3s have held their value well on eBay for 15 year old laptops, I agree there is a good place to check.There are plenty of vintage mac collectors out there. Check e-bay for recent sold auctions to get a better idea of what the price would be for selling.
I was at a flea market today and looking in one booth that usually has some Apple stuff(generally ridiculously overpriced). He told me that he had a "14.1" i7" that he would go get out of his car if I was interested. I then spotted a 15" Aluminum laptop of some sort, although it was positioned in such a way that I couldn't tell if it was a Powerbook or Macbook Pro. I asked him about it, and his first question was what I would pay for it . In any case, it was an early '08 Macbook Pro with a badly swelled battery and he couldn't get it to power up. I talked him down to a $100 based on this. It was really nice cosmetically and I figured it was worth that even if parted out. I brought it home, put a(bad) factory battery I had lying around in it, and am typing this post from it.Before you get laughed off the planet, they are PowerBooks and not MacBooks.

I'm not mad, upset, or trying to be a jerk about it, but it causes a lot less headaches when you use the right words.
