Hi guys, I've finally getting the PB. A 9month old 15" RevB PB. Yes, it's used, but i tested it and examined it, it was like new. And the other thing is, it is a blue special edition (whole case was in blue instead of silver chrome). I've never heard about it. Anyone would have more info about it?

Just want you to know that that machine must be a Rev. A.
The Rev. B 15" PowerBook G4 was released almost 2 months ago!

It might not change anything, but I just wanted to let you know!

A blue 15" PB? Are you sure? It's probably painted over. Never heard of such a thing.

im not very sure, will find out from the seller later. he said it was custom order from an apple reseller. its like a layer of coating on top of the aluminium casing. i was shocked as well when i saw the PB yesterday.

yeah, i was really lucky, maybe its just faith. the seller said he got lots of enquiry emails, but he didnt read all and so happen he choose to reply my email. Im glad. the machine is fine, like the seller said, its really in good shape.
