    Specs:
    2011 13" MBP 2.3ghz, 8gig ram, OS 10.8.5
    $300 (Canadian $$) would be a better price...maybe $350.

    Good luck,

    Everything I looked up on here I have never seen being sold for those prices, some of them were outrageous like my ibook is only worth 190$ cdn, but I see them being sold for 400$ is this site reliable, if so where are these computers being sold?

    All we can do is provide you with information. If you feel the Powerbook G4 you're looking at is worth 400$ CDN...then purchase it.

    I regularly purchase older G3 iMacs for $20 dollars US a piece...yet I still see other people selling them for $60-$70 US.

    There's no concrete rules when buying/selling used computers.

    Good luck,

    May well be worth the asking price. What operating system is installed, does the install DVD come with the machine, also do original OS X.3 system restore discs come with it?

    None of these discs deduct $100.00.
