    They contain CRACK! :D

    Srsly though, I keep contemplating collecting macs...but my utilitarian side revolts at the thought.

    I'm going to my girlfriends uncle's today and he had asked me if i had any interest in older power pc macs. at the time i didnt realy think about it but im going to try and bring it up. see if i can get a couple for free. He works in a lab so they have a bunch im guessing. wish me luck.

    That is actually a good deal and even if it has AC left on it. Also the 12" one's are the best for being so small

    I'll second this. I absolutely LOVED my 12" PB (1.33Ghz), and would probably still be writing on it had the hard drive not crapped out, giving me an excuse to spring for a MBP! :eek:

    Go for it. $600 is a great deal. Check and see how the battery's doing though. And the power adapter. I just had to replace mine. They're like $80 from Apple, but I managed to ebay one new for about $40.

    I have a 12" pbook (RevA) and a MBP and I found myself still preferring the pbook for taking notes in class etc. I only bring my MBP if I need it for work.

    Agreed if the battery is good and it cosmetically clean, that's a pretty good deal.
    12"PBs are good quality little machines.
