    Well, my patience has finally payed off! I got a 17" PowerBook G4 from work for free. Its missing all of it's upper case screws, the RAM access door, and a battery. Its in fairly good shape, the only one of the corners are bent. Right now, its running 10.5.8, and has 1GB of RAM. Its the 2005 model with a 1.5Ghz CPU.

    Merry Christmas to you indeed! I am very jealous since the 15" PB I have needs a lot of work and some parts. So good for you and enjoy it!

    My wife has the 12" PowerBook.

    When I use it - I do not love it. When I have to work on it - I hate it.

    When I do not use it - I am able to forget about it.

    :D

    *cries*

    I honestly wish I could get the freebies other posters get. Maybe sometime in the future, I will. Color me jealous.
