Hi guys, just wanted to tell you I just got for under 100€ on eBay a 15" Powerbook G4 in very good conditions! It's the one with Ati 9700 mobility radeon with 128 MB and dual layer DVD! I'm really excited and it will come next week.
I'll update the post with photos when I'll have my hands on it!
Wasn't it a very nice deal?!

Congrats. It's a nice machine. I got one for free last week. I've already maxed out the RAM (supports 2 GB) and installed a SSD. It seems to run fairly snappy for an 11 year old laptop.

I am a big fan of the PowerBook 15", although I don't use mine as often as I should. Even a decade after it was discontinued, it's still a pleasing and impressive design.

Don't believe beanboy89. Those screens have been known to, EXPLODE! Yeah, that's what they do...they can explode at a moment's notice. You should send that to me immediately so that I can--

There is no way I am going back to the Naughty Stool. You will have to kill me before I go back to that Naughty Stool.
