    Can someone please tell me what all this is worth....

    G4 powerbook 12" 1ghz 768ram 60hd airport+bluetooth 32video card (dual monitor support) DVD/cd combo drive, OS: tiger

    also included is a goincase sling bag, a wireless mouse, travel adaptors, video out adaptor, dual monitor connects and two batteries.

    I think he is throwing in a motion CD(original) and a few preinstalls, or burned copies of final cut 4, illustrator 10, photoshop, ms office 04, etc

    I realize that macworld is coming out tomorrow, but everytime something new comes out, I just want to buy it, but can never afford it so I thought I would settle for this. How much should I pay for all this?


    Very much appreciated, thankyou

    Really? With all those accesories, and everything else? The guy wants $1175 - maybe I should wait until tomorrow and/or keep looking

    Thanks for the info Yard, I was considering getting the ibook. I'm kind of new to all this, and wasn't sure what the best deal around was. Will a newer ibook outperform a 1 GHz powerbook?

    As you mentioned, the MacWorld keynote is tomorrow and virtually everyone expects the MacTels to come out. If they do, that should lower the value of the existing PowerPC Macs so you may be able to get more bang for your buck on a used system in the next few weeks. I definitely would wait to see what Jobs announces even if you're not in the market for a new rig.
