    Working ones sell for over $100. Good luck.

    ^Yep, and I think if the OP wants to get a good, working one, he should want to pay a good price for one.

    After all, aren't those extremely hard to find in working order nowadays since they had those bad batteries that go/went bad?

    If you want to advertise, you need to post in the marketplace forum (250 posts+) and put out a want ad. Nobody is going to sell you a working Macintosh Portable for under $100.

    I'd check eBay for one labeled "as-is". Most of the people selling them don't have a clue what they're worth, and you can get them cheap. I got mine, which came with original power cord and mouse, for 50 bucks. Seller said it wouldn't power on, didn't know what was wrong with it. Turns out the 9v battery was from the 80's! Replaced it and the thing booted right off. Big lead 6v was fine too!

    Good luck,
