    I have a powerbook g4 too to sell

    So I am getting a new MBP and tons of accessories soon, maybe tomorrow, and may want to sell my PB 12" G4. Mine is a 1.5 GHz, 512mb ram, and just got a battery a few months ago from the recall. HOWEVER, and this is the sad part, it's taken a few falls and has a few dents/uneven parts.

    Is it worth selling once I transfer everything? How much would someone pay for it? Everything still works well, no real problems, but the case just isn't so square anymore. I worry if I put it on eBay or something and even if I did 100% full disclosure, I'll be disappointing someone. I mean, I would hate to sell a mac to someone who doesn't understand that it's noticeably dented and this may impact their experience.

    What about like $300? Or is that too little? How frustrating...

    Can see the end of the Earth from here
    FWIW, I'm getting ready to put a 15" 1.67MHz G4 Powerbook with 2G of memory, at least a year of AppleCare left, mint condition, and lots of extra goodies (extra battery, RadTech Sleevz, etc.) up on eBay and I'm wondering what it's worth.

    I just sold my G4 1.42 MHz iBook with a similar setup and it netted a little over $800 on eBay. Prices there are pretty good from what I'm seeing. I've never tried the forum here, so I guess I'll take a look over there and see what's up.
