OK. Upon further reflection and some advice from a few Mac users I'm going to hold out getting a new Mac this year and opt to save up for a Prius next spring. But the itch needs to be scratched. I'm running an aging 800Mhz Toshiba laptop that is feeling its age both for gaming, DVD ripping, web development, and photo manipulation. Its not the slowest on the market but its getting to a point where I have to wait to get some things done. So the question I put forth is where on this glorious "web" is the best place to find used PowerBooks? I'm looking for a G4 to tide me over for a year to a year and a half until I can plunk down the cash for a G5 17 PowerBook. Also what gotchas do I need to look out for when dealing with used Mac equipment? Everything I've purchased up til now has been new and I'm a bit squeamish dealing with used equipment but if it can same me some $$$ so be it. Any advice you guys can provide would be greatly appreciated. *Sighs* I guess I should alter my signature.
