    If you think this thread title is crazy, check this out. And I think I'm going to raise the prices on all PPC Macs I have from now on!

    Crazy iBook G4

    And just so everybody here knows, I just pulled this up and that was the stated price. PLUS, the iBook has some damage to it!

    Even $200's too much to ask for an iBook G4. Some people really overvalue their old tech.

    Haha! Looks like you could save $150 and buy a MBP with a 2.3 GHz i5 instead!

    Yeah, but they offer shipping for free PLUS the ultimate 80$/year protection-plan!

    The funny thing is that I work for Best Buy and this site is owned by them. Most likely they accepted a trade-in and are now trying to maximize on it. Perhaps someone even thought it was an early MacBook? No idea.

    Ahh. Surely someone's made a mistake inputting the price and it should be $70.00?

    One can only hope that it was simple as that. But I highly doubt it and perhaps that is something that was accidentally re-added to the inventory. I have no clue but ti thought that the price of that machine was noteworthy.

    You see this from time to time - there's a guy who's trying to hock a quad for 699 on my local craigslist. I've tried to get him down to a more reasonable (but still fairly generous) price...no dice.
