I have a 12" Powerbook G4 1Ghz w/ 768MB RAM / Combo Drive with a fresh install of 10.4.11 Tiger ( I can install a copy of or Leopard on there if preferred), and the power adapter of course.

Note: The battery does NOT hold charge and the bottom case is dinged up on the right hand side and a slight scuff on the top left- besides that there are no other scratches or dings anywhere else.

Aside from aesthetics, the machine works perfectly fine!

You can see some pics here:

$300 + shipping

I certainly love mine!
I sold mine just like this one and found a 1.5ghz and loaded it up as much as I could.
Best one I have ever had and I have a Blackbook too.

Good Luck

i am almost interested, but considering it's pretty banged up around the battery and the battery won't hold a charge, i'm concerned, it won't charge a new battery. not to mention the price still seems high for a severely damaged powerbook.
as ever,

I actually tried a friend's working 12" powerbook battery and it works perfectly fine.. I've seen batteries on eBay anywhere from $15 - $50.

You haven't seen a severly damaged PowerBook until you've seen mine.

Nope but it looks way worse, and is older.
