For sale 12" Powerbook G4 1Ghz

in General Discussion edited January 2014
A beautiful 1Ghz 12" Powerbook with a 40 Gig hard drive. The ram has been upped from 256 to 384 MB. Built in airport extreme and bluetooth. There are no dead pixels on the screen. There are a couple, very small and faint white spots on the screen. They are not able to be seen unless you stick your face up close and really look. The top of the case has a few scratches from everyday use which are purely cosmetic and in no way affect the computer. The computer is bent out about a centimeter near the latch which again is a small cosmetic glitch that in no way affects the performance of the computer. It is a great laptop that will be sold so my sister can get a desktop. The battery doesn't hold much of a charge. You can get about a half hour if you turn the contrast down.

I would be willing to sell for $949. If anyone is interested, send me an email @ or PM me.

I accept paypal and can ship to North America, South America and Europe

    Well Powerbooks have a DVI out and are slightly smaller. It is 50 dollars cheaper than the iBook. Anyways, if someone would like to make an offer I would be will to negotiate.
