Well chances are, you'll find one that's a bit beat up cosmetically. Battery life may be subpar (and you'll need to find a new battery). The logic board may have problems (rendering the thing junk). Unless you're buying direct from Apple...
Might I suggest Adopt a Mac
They sell used PowerBooks, and the very rare occasional iBook or MacBook/MacBook Pro. I see a lot of PowerBooks go up on this site. I also see them disappear like hotcakes. Same with the desktops they sell on this site. I bought a PowerMac G4 from them for dirt cheap. But it's your choice.
Apple's refurb'd options really clean up the used computers, but you'll still be paying an arm and a leg.
