I have been thinking about it. I also have an external LCD that I work primarly off of, which I would be selling too. Along with my Apple Bluetooth Keyboard. I had the 12" for school and I graduated in December. I would just like more power now that size isn't much of a constraint. How much of a performance increase am I looking at going to a 1.5ghz, 1024mb RAM? My 12" has 768mb RAM and a 4200rpm HD. Better to just go to a 1.33 for the price? How much do you guys think I could get for my current PowerBook? I didn't get the extra warranty... 1yr expires at the end of September though.

I think if you had the extra cash, by all means go for the Rev. C model. I would say at least 1~1.5GB or more RAM, depending on what apps you would like running( e.g. motion ). The more the merrier IMO. Do a quick search on eBay to check out the market price, but do try and get rid of it before the 1 year expiration date. Having Extended warranty can add tremendous value to your computer as well cause PB part/labor is quite costly.

Cheers~

I would definitely tell the buyer he has an opportunity to buy AppleCare before the year is over. That is the case, right?

right... you should be able to buy an extended warranty.
