    In the Box?
    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.

    3 System Restore Discs
    Battery is in the powerbook if my memory serves correctly (mine was upgraded in store so that may have done it)
    AC Adapter
    Extension cord thingy for AC Adapter
    Quick Guide to OS X
    PowerBook G4 Instruction Manual
    2 Apple Stickers
    Telephone Cord (Apple White)
    One Blank CD-R (Verbatim I think)

    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.

    So in other words, the PB is included with restore discs with everything on them that was there during manufacturing?
