Wondering exactly what comes in the Powerbook box.

-Driver CDs?
-OSX disc?
-AC Adapter?
-Battery?
-Instructions?
-Power Cables?

Directed towards anyone who knows, but namely people who have recently bought a Powerbook G4.

Everything you listed, although the other CD's are "Software Restore" disks, not drivers. If the contents are similar to my iBook, then you should also receive a telephone cable and some blank CD's.

PowerBooks do not come with AppleWorks...They don't have any extra software that is installed on iBooks (Encyclopedia, game demos, AppleWorks, SoundStudio)

When opened mine had the battery installed and it powered up without the power supply so had some charge to it. Had the Power supply, and extension cord, phone cord and mauals etc. No blank media of any type and my PB came with two cd's, one with the system restore (dvd) and one with GarageBand. There were two white Apple stickers in the manual.
