    15" 1.67 Ghz Powerbook G4
    1 gig of RAM
    128 megs VRAM
    100 Gig Hard Drive
    Everything else is standard.

    It's in MINT condition and comes with all original packaging, manuals, and accessories. How much do you think I could sell it for?

    $1000-$1200? checked ebay and that seems to be pretty consistent. i'm amazed at the amount of bids the aging apple laptops bring in.

    what are you looking to upgrade to?

    Yea, I'm amazed with how well they hold their value when if you look at Apple's refurb section on their site a newer, faster model is usually $2-300 more.

    I want a MBP. The only thing holding me back is I record a lot with a PCMCIA card that I have. There isn't an Express card for it yet.

    Is anything out on Express card yet? I haven't seen any.

    I think I'm gonna sell my powerbook g4 and then buy a macbook with my apple discount. It'd only be about $50 out of pocket for me. Anyone see any downside to switching from a 15" Pbook G4 1.33 to a 13" macbook 1.83?

    Oh, ya, but mine rarely leaves the couch/bed so that's not too big a factor. The only thing would be getting used to the smaller screen and all the plastic around the screen that makes it look even smaller. :hs: oh, and the white color.
