I'm selling a couple Mac notebooks. USPS money orders only please. Prices include shipping (USPS priority) and insurance.

All machines have wear from years of use; any notable issues are annotated for each. I am habitually out of touch with Mac resell values, hence the or-best-offer.

The first is a white MacBook 13" (early 2008). You can find full technical details here, but specs particular to this one are:
  • 120 GB HDD @ 5400 RPM
  • 2.1 GHz Core 2 Duo
  • Combo Drive (DVD-ROM, CD-RW)
  • 2 GB RAM (2x1 GB)
  • Airport 802.11 b/g
It has some damage on the bottom right palm rest and the power supply's LED indicator will go off or dim when the computer is fully charged (but continues to provide power). At this age the battery is also not much use, perhaps 60 minutes on moderate usage.

It comes with OS X 10.6 installed so you can ensure things are working, but I've since lost all discs and original software. It may be of more use to you as spare parts.

US$400 obo and view its pictures here: Dropbox - MacBook


The second is the classic PowerBook G4 12" and its full technical details are here. Specs particular to this one are:
  • 867 MHz
  • 640 MB RAM
  • 40 GB HDD @ 4200 RPM
  • Combo drive (DVD-ROM, CD-RW)
  • Airport 802.11 b/g
It has some damage on the bottom right palm rest, a small dent in the same area, and the power supply's LED indicator will go off when the computer is fully charged (but it continues to provide power). The battery is not usable for more than 10 minutes. OS X 10.4 installed to test the machine, but also long since lost all discs/media.

US$ $300 obo and its gallery is here: Dropbox - PowerBook G4 12"

Just for the record, you can take that MacBook to any Apple Store and get the palmrest piece replaced at no charge.

I can ship to any US zip code, no problem. d4nth3m4n if you are still interested, I can do $325 but I won't be able to ship until the 9th or 10th. Let me know, otherwise I'd like to offer it up to jlwolfer since his post follows yours.

Apologies all for the delays. I was in the middle of a move, lost internet for a few days, and now am on dial-up while traveling.
