    I've been thinking about putting it on ebay but I figure I'll check here first. It is the absolute highest end model sold at that time, and has the upgraded video card. Only physical problems are some minor scratches, a couple places where the aluminum color has faded because of moisture, and some minor dents... I will send pictures to anybody who is seriously interested.

    I bought it in oct/nov of 2004. It's got:

    15" 1.5ghz G4 Processor
    1GB of RAM
    80GB HD (Upgraded version, 5400rpm)
    Superdrive
    128mb Video Card (Upgraded Version)
    Airport Exteme
    Bluetooth
    Backlit Keyboard
    Applecare
    & procare if it's transferrable ( I believe it is)

    Now I'm going to sweeten the deal by including ALL of the Apple Pro Applications including all documentation, worth $1300:

    Final Cut Pro 5
    Motion 2
    Soundtrack Pro
    DVD Studio Pro 4
    Compressor

    As well as:
    Microsoft Office 2004 ($400)
    Cocktail ($15)
    KILL MONTY ($13)
    Netshade 2 ($30)

    as well as 3 extra batteries worth $130 each and also an iSight... AND an external HD (I believe it is a 150gb, I will have to double check).

    Just to wrap up... the software and other accessories alone are worth over $2000.

    I'm asking $1999 shipped.

    Anyone interested?

    just to let you know, no one cares about added software and shouldn't have any value on the actual laptop itself. I sold my 1.67Ghz last rev. powerbook for $1800 and was damn lucky i got that.

    Lol... alright... I'm offering up a good laptop with thousands of dollars of software and accessories... if noone wants to buy it fine. You can buy it off ebay so there is buyer protection if you want... or you can call me and talk to me... whatever.

    The only way I would see value in selling the software is if all copies are originals and you are including copies of the disks, manuals, etc.

    Otherwise, people are really only going to look at the hardware and unfortunately it can be had for a lot less right now.

    Yeah... and it is... Final Cut is going for 1000 on ebay... so asking 1999 is not overpriced.

    you guys are fucking idiots.

    My suggestions for you:

    Clearly state that you are including original copies of all software. Sooooooo many people use pirated software to try and sell their computer. I love the ads that state "over $10,000 in software installed". It's not $10,000 worth of software if you didn't pay for it and aren't including disks.

    Take pictures of everything, the pictures will explain everything regarding the software.

    Include some sort of laptop bag, if you don't have one, spend $50 and include one. The bag will sort of tie everything together.

    Good luck with your sell!

    Yeah I have the full version of Final Cut Studio... the box weighs like 20 pounds... nearly all of that being documentation. I can post pics of the box or whatever if there is anyone seriously interested in buying it. Like I said if you want buyer protection you can just buy it on ebay and pay paypal. Hell if your in the area you can even come by and pick it up yourself. I said in my post that all original documentation will be included. I might be better off selling final cut and the computer seperately... but I figure I might get someone who wants final cut and a laptop for a pretty decent price.

    There are two versions? It is the full version of all the software...

    No, both are the full version. Only the Academic version has an agreement in the EULA that you can't use it for profit or in a professional setting. It's for learning only.

    Same goes for all Academic software.

    Academic is fully functional but licensed only for education...meaning you can't make money using it or you get :idhitit:

    It makes a difference...because if its academic, and I, for example were using it, I may as well have used a completely pirate copy...just as illegal.

    If academic its still worth monies...just not as many.
