    I know someone that has a G4PB 12" with a broken screen, do you guys think it is worth buying, and how much do you think it is worth?

    I have an old PB G4 1 Ghz 15" with a cracked screen. I looked around for replacements and the minimum I found was about $300 for the screen.

    You can find used Powerbooks for about the same price.

    So it's really up to you.

    I'd say it's not worth a whole lot. Depends on what you want to use it for. Personally, I'd kind of like one to play around with, but it wouldn't be worth over about $75 to me. It's likely worth more to other people, but that's my personal opinion.

    If it was me I don't think that I would pay any more than $100 but even then I'm not sure I would go for it.

    Depends on the condition of the pb and the specs too. If it was a 1.5, a screen might be worth it, if the rest of the laptop was in good condition as well. 1.33 might be pushing it.
