    Hello Mac Shack
    Today I bought a damaged G4 17" powerbook for an extremly cheap price(i didnt really need a new computer but he was practicaly giving it away), the screen is heavily damaged it has small cracks and around them is possibly broken picsels sorta like this IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v706/pbnation/damage.bmp[/IMG]
    it also didnt come with a powercord cause he broke 2 and didnt think it was worth it to buy more cause of the screen, he said it costed 2000 when he recived it around a year or 2 ago.
    now for the questions,
    How much would you have paid for the powerbook?
    Is it possible to fix the screen for a reasonably price or fo it by my self?
    Can the powerbook hook up to a regular pc monitor ( if it needs an adaptor how much does it cost)?

    thank you for your help

    you can hook it up to a monitor via the DVI out, and if your monitor does not support DVI, there are dvi to agp adapers cheap. I am not sure how fixable the screen is, can you take a picture of the thing?

    im sure you can still use it w/ an external monitor and it'll work just fine. I wouldn't even try to get the screen fixed. Probably more of a hassle than anything. You can pick up a powercord for about $15-30.
