    30 minutes to decide for me
    Since I need a new daily use laptop...and the auction ends in ohh...30 minutes...Let's see what you guys think:

    Aluminum 15" Powerbook 1.67 GHz 1.5GB RAM. Great condition but has white marks all over the screen. It's currently going for $200.

    Give me a yay or nay for this guys...Actually besides slicing my fingers open...I found that doing the hinges on a TiBook isn't really that bad at all so I'm not afraid of replacing the screen on an aluminum. If you guys think I should go for this, what do you think my max bid should be?
    Yes my name is Jaguar.
    No, it is not a joke.
    I don't find your "I'm a cheetah." joke funny.

    Not sure on max bid. Everymac.com still shows $900+ for low end for that model. (15")
    Seems like a good deal to me so far though...

    You do not have any more fingers to hurt! Get the new one!

    On a more serious note, it does look like a good deal. I wonder though what those marks are on the screen. You have a url? Send it as a PM if you are worried someone would outbid you. I will not.

    You're a good man Dennis! I would give some rep, but it wants me to spread it around first...

    It looks good. Check your PM. Sometimes marks like that at least with some iBooks came from key caps hitting the screen. I just wish he showed a real live pic of the screen.

    WOw, they were waiting in line! $355. What was your high bid?

    That has happened to me more than once and I could not afford to go higher. I usually wait till the last 10 seconds and hit bid.

    Oh my, the winning bidder has ZERO feedback. Hope the dood gets his $$$!

    No, you know what...No...I'm not going to get mad at this...There must've been a reason why I didn't win it...I remember one time I was bidding on a 1.67GHz Alubook and I lost it at the last second to one of my buddies ironically...He had nothing but problems with it...
    Yes my name is Jaguar.

    Yes there is one thing worse than being outbid by a noob....Getting negative feedback by one. ><


    Regardless...I have two good logic boards that are 1GHz...I'll just get a 667MHz TiBook with a good screen and swap em out.

    That is a good way to look at it so you will not be mad. That screen may have been quite annoying. Oh well, If I see another at a low price I will PM you.


    I had a friend just sell his MINT 1.67Ghz 17" with Leopard, 2GB RAM, 160GB 7200 RPM drive, brand new DVD burner and he only got $500. It was mint also.
