Hi, I've recently gotten good deals on 2 laptops. $500 for 1ghz 15" aluminum powerbook, and $400 for a 1.2ghz 12" ibook. The 15" is in great condition with a replaced screen but has the lower memory slot issue. The ibook works perfectly and the only issue is that the palmrest is dirty, but I definitely can replace it myself. My sole purpose right now is to keep a cheap laptop until the newer ones come out and are reliable. So i want to keep the one that will give me the most resale value at the end of this. I don't know how much the lower memory issue drops the value of the powerbook. In terms of portability and such, both are fine for me. In terms of screen size, when I really need to get work done i do it on my g5 with 20" ACD. I know that for either one, I can make some money by selling them. Which would you keep and why? Thanks!!
