    What should I look at when buying used laptop?
    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?


    15.4" Macbook Pro 1.83Ghz 2GB RAM 80GB HD Mac OS x 10.4.4
    1.8Ghz P4 1024mb RAM 2x80GB, 1x160GB, 1x250GB HD's Windows XP and SuSe Linux 9
    IPOD 6gb Lime Green Mini

    Powerbook G4/ 15.2"/ 1.67 ghz/ 2 gb RAM/ ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 (128 mb RAM)/ 100 gb hdd@ 5400 RPM
    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.
