    School's keeping me too busy to play with my ibook, I only go on my windows box to program .net stuff so I'm thinking about selling the lappy and putting the money in the bank for a house. Problem is, I have no idea what these things are worth, can anyone tell me?

    12'' Ibook purchased from Apple in July of '05

    1.2ghz, 1.25GB of memory, 30GB HDD, OSX 1.4, airport built in, no blue tooth, absolutely perfect condition.

    I'd also probably want to throw in my little Airport Express base station.

    What should she sell for?

    I concur, July of 02 is way off. Perhaps July of 03? Or later...

    regardless, I think its worth $750 or so -- maybe $100 more with the base station. Its tough... Mac's have wierd resale values..

    you should be able to get about $700-800 for it. As long as you're willing to throw in more than what comes with the OS, people will pay the extra money.

    Oops! it was July '05. Not sure what I was thinking there..

    Whats she worth? It litterally is scratch free, in PERFECT condition. I have probably used it only about 40 hours.

    the zoo, MI? I'm assuming u live near birmingham? (detroit zoo??)

    anywho, with the airport, i would say u could get like 800+. Do u know if it has a combo or superdrive?
    All the apple computers that have superdrives sell for about 100 bucks more than the base models when ur buying them new, so i'd say it would add arround 75ish?

    You SHOULD get $900 if not a little bit more. All that extra ram and the base station would boost it up.
