Hey all. Time to sell some more stuff in time for christmas! :)

Up for bid is a nice looking Apple PowerBook G4 1.5ghz, with a Radeon 9600 and 100 gb hard drive and DVD burner. This thing I got from a friend who said it was broken. Turns out it had a bad hard drive. After replacing it it worked 100%.

This thing is in great shape, not too scratched on the outer body and it works flawlessly. the only thing I should point out is that the : and ; key was popped off. I still have the key but haven't yet tried to put it back on. Other than that, its great. EDIT: Replacement keys are cheap too Replacement keys G4 12"15"17"PowerBook Silver Keyboard - (eBay.ca item 360039448264 end time 10-Apr-08 02:43:04 EDT)

This thing has a 10.4 license assosiated with it but I don't have the discs. This should be fixable by borrowing someone's disc or getting it off ebay (My friend got one off ebay for 30 bucks). It also runs Fedora and Ubuntu PPC perfectly. This thing comes with a non-standard power adapter (but with Apple Branding).

This morning I saw one of these models go for about 800, but I am asking for $600 CAD shipped. I only accept PayPal, or cash on local pickup. Please feel free to ask questions, and pictures are to come. They are at home on my Mac :).

EDIT: Pictures!

I would really like this machine, can you try to get that key back on? What do you think it would cost to get it refurbed by Apple to fix the problems with the stickiness?

I am looking to buy a MacBook Pro, this may be a cheaper alternative, but $600, I think it is a great machine but I have seen used Macbooks going for $900. Would you be willing to sway on the price perhaps? It would take me a bit to get the money together.

The stickyness seems to be gone. I used it regularly and now the only issue is the lost key (And you don't use it alot in osx). For a new keyboard, I've seen them go for about 30-40 bucks on ebay, but I never bothered since its the least used key i have, and when i use it, it works fine.
