    Hey, guys. as you may remember from the last thread, I wanted to do a stupid deal thing, or at least you people thought it was stupid. Well, here comes another one. For those of you trying to tell me to be happy with what I have, with all due respect, I don't care in the slightest. This is what I do for fun. :)

    Anyway, I currently use a 1.67GHz 15" Powerbook G4, a 1.5GHz IBM Thinkpad X41, and a dual 800MHz Power Mac G4 with enough video cards for like 6 monitors. I would like to change computers in one of many different ways I've thought of.

    Option one: Sell the Thinkpad for $450, buy a 24" LCD and new battery for the Powerbook, so I kill both the desktop and laptop birds with one stone.

    Option two: Trade the Powerbook for a 15" 2GHz Pentium M-equipped T43 Thinkpad. Sell the other thinkpad to buy a 24" LCD and a new battery.

    Option three: Sell the Powerbook and buy a Thinkpad T60p from a guy I know.

    Option four: Sell everything plus my iBBook G4 I use at my mom's house and buy a laptop I can use for school.

    Option five: Sell both laptops and keep the PowerMac, and buy a MacBook.

    Option six: Sell the thinkpad and buy a 12" Powerbook.

    These are all I can think of. I will add more as I think of them. Please let me know which ones you think are the best, and please, please, please don't try to be my life coach! :rolleyes:

    Thanks so much!

    Meh, that's what I may be doing. It seems likely, but we'll see how things play out.

    On a side note, I just got an offer of $690 for the powerbook, is he lowballing?

    Regarding option five, if I remember right didn't you just trade a MacBook for the PowerBook? Just asking...
