    * needs repair, Vid card is borked. Screen/external video are visible, but have odd anomolies.

    Computer works great otherwise, i can boot it via target disk mode to any other box i want.

    Has extra memory, like 2gb total IIRC, super drive, 80gb hd IIRC, 15" screen

    Repairing it at apple would be like 350$ (flat rate)

    I'd entertain offers above 300$ for it with out being repaired. :dunno:

    That's a problem they had with the video chip separating from the mobo, was a bad process. It needs a whole new logic board.

    too much$$$ especially since the whole logic board has to be swapped out. Reflowing is a disaster and never works properly. I didnt know that the powerbooks suffered from this, i thought that it was only the ibooks, oh well, so much for that.
