    I've got a box of 12" Powerbooks taken apart. I warranty at least ONE full Powerbook works, at best you might get four full working PBs.

    There is a 867mhz board, 1ghz board, 1.33ghz board, 1.5ghz board (there might be two of these, I cannot remember).

    There are at least four working screens.

    Some memory, though not a lot.

    Correct trackpads.

    Screws random and galore.

    Yours for the cost of shipping the whole thing.

    I also have a box of various iBook g3 and G4 parts, one 14" G3 and I think I have that logic board but can't remember. Mostly 12" G4 parts.

    If you want that box, same deal.

    How much would shipping be for that? (California).

    To clarify, they are taken apart, the logic boards are in protective bags.

    ----------

    I'll weigh the box and let people know.

    No problem-I'd still like them unless they've been spoken for.

    Well, I did just bought one, but am now looking for(at a minimum) a replacement screen and would also like to put together at least one more!

    I need something to do over Christmas break :)

    Why, if only we could work on this together! Sounds like a painstaking-yet-fun project.

    I suppose I'll work on the Hackintosh with my brother :)

    I just wanted to let everyone know that I am enormously thankful to member California.

    All told, three boxes were sent my way, the largest of which I haven't even had a chance to go through completely yet.

    So far, I've been able to:

    1. Completely assemble and get working a 1.33ghz 12" iBook G4

    2. Replace the badly chipped top case on my A1138 Powerbook

    3. Replace the CD-ROM drive in my Xserve with a Superdrive out of a Powerbook.

    I also have another 12" iBook G4(bought separately) that is in need of a new keyboard or at least a few keycaps, and am sure that I can take care of that.

    I'm excited to get into the Powerbooks and see what I'm able to make of them. I've been avoiding having to take a 12" PB completely apart, but this will be a great opportunity to put together(hopefully) a couple of working ones from parts and learn the ins and outs of putting them together.

    There were several "extras" thrown in too that I wasn't expecting, including a couple of loose, good batteries, a few chargers(including one brand new one) and a SATA Optibay that will fit a Powerbook.

    Thank you again to California!
