Hi everyone... I have a powerbook XXXX. I have had it for quite some time to be honest. I would love to know how much I might get for it, in other words what the value of such a machine is... I have seen prototypes going for thousands and others for hundreds, is it a question of luck??? the machine is in great physical condition and works perfectly It is a PROTOTYPE so it is incredibly rare... not sure how many prototypes one can find of the same model so this might be unique... some of the plastic is different than the other machines of the same type... being a prototype it has not been approved by the FCC and the device was not for sale or lease... another interesting point is that when it loads up it displays a message in an icon stating: "I dont do windows" very cool indeed it loads a version of mac os 7.5 if i remember correct what i noticed is that it is similar to the one used in the movie Independence Day. Apple say it used powerbook 5300 but if you check out the movie you can see it is a powerbook XXXX . However on the laptop it says Model number M3047 in other words a powerbook 190 series... any ideas??
