I have some medical bills that I need to pay. So I'm selling my iBook G3 900MHz 12" laptop.
Specs are as follows:

Memory: 640MB (maxed out)
CD-RW/DVD combo drive
40GB hard drive
Airport Wireless card installed
Mac OS X Tiger 10.4 installed (all disc included and all current updates)
No deal pixels on the screen
AC Power adapter
Battery holds a good 3 1/2 hour charge

I'm asking $400 for it. I'll pay shipping. I'm looking to sell this asap. I'll take paypal, personal check (iBook will ship once I have cashed the check) or a wire transfer. If your interested or have questions PM. Thanks.

For future comparison if people are looking at pricing on these: I just sold my 800 mhz iBook, 30 gig for $400. This is a good deal if it's not gone already. (I had no less than 10 emails in a day from a craigslist ad.)

Hmm. I remember I got it from 18004memory.com. That was 3 years ago. I can't remember the price. I just checked on their site and they go for $95 for generic and $109 for name brand. I bought a genric way back then and had no problems with it.
