    I have a PowerBook G4 and I'm thinking of selling it, but I need some advice about what price I should sell it for... with that I was wondering if someone could tell me what information I should post on here about it so I get some advice.

    Thanks for any help, much appreciated.

    Thanks for the link to that site, I typed all the details in and it lists the PowerBook at £550. Mac2Sell Link

    Here's what I wrote about the laptop below, anything else I should include??
    Should I sell it for £550, as I've also included software and the extra hardware?
    Again, thanks for any help and advice, much appreciated.
