I'm finally ready to upgrade and need to sell what I have.

This is the 15" Al-book. It has 512 RAM. It is currently running OS 10.4. I can install CS3 if you like. The only problem is the battery is outta juice and this runs on adaptor only. The adaptor I have currently is from Newer.

Asking Price is:$450, I think that's a good deal, but I'm sure I will hear about it if it's not.

PS- I also have an iMac G5, 2.1, 20" that I would like to sell, but the SuperDrive doesn't work and I'm not sure how I am goin to reinstall and clean off the hard drive. Basically, every time I put in a DVD or CD, the system freezes...

Hook it up to the PowerBook via Firewire, boot the iMac in target disk mode, and do it from the PowerBook?

OK, judging from a couple others I have seen, I am dropping the price of the Powerbook to $400 shipped. Any offers or ideas on the iMac?

UPDATE on the iMac: I'm going to ask $500 shipped. (may vary depending where it is shipped and shipping method chosen.)
Whatever might have been wrong with the Superdrive is no longer. It might have been an outdated iTunes, bad CD, not sure. But I tested it on 3 things and all works fine. I couldn't take pics of a DVD playing, ScreenGrab is disabled during playback. But here is everything else:













I'm in the process of cleaning the keyboard and I will then reformat once my laptop comes in this week.

UPDATE: Price drop

15" Powerbook G$ 1.67 GHz- needs new battery. You can get a new one online for about $65 or I'll buy it and add that to the price.
-minor scratches associated with normal wear and tear
-SuperDrive
-512 RAM
-Airport Card
$350 shipped

iMac G5 2.1 GHz
-SuperDrive
-250 GB HD
-1.5 GB RAM
-Remote
-Mighty Mouse (wired)
-OS 10.4
-iSight
-Airport Card

I can probably round up the original manuals and discs. The only cosmetic flaw is where I tried to wipe some adhesive off with Goo-B-Gone on the right side of the monitor. (Don't do that btw), so there is a streak where the pretty polish came off- it's about .5"x6".

$475 shipped

If these prices are unreasonable, make an offer. I have just compared to those sold on eBay.

Thanks.

Somewhat unrelated, but can you post a link to your wallpaper in those screenshots?
Sell or send me your vintage Mac things if you don't want them.

Maybe you could upload it somewhere and PM it to me?

It's possible. Deal is in progress, but has not gone through.

Is the PowerBook able to play Youtube HD videos, or Hulu HD videos? Also do HD movies work in VLC?

Thanks!
