My ibook broke yesterday, the logicboard failed, and I found a very good deal for a 1.5Ghz powerbook on craigslist. I may be meeting with the individual this afternoon to check out the laptop. They claim to have applecare on the machine, and such. How do I go about checking to make sure there is apple care? Also, what else should I look at on the laptop to make sure that it's in good conditition, and won't break on me in a short time?

THanks!

Call AppleCare while your there and confirm that the policy is still active, then, while he's there, make sure they transfer the policy to you (otherwise, you'll have some weird tech support conversations and your PowerBook may be reported as stolen).

I'd use Windows... but I like the Mac OS more.
