Powerbook trade?
 
I am selling or trading my T-Mobile G1 and the first place I went was Craigslist. I got an email from someone offering me a titanium Powerbook G4 in trade. I used my Google skillz to find that the Powerbook is an older computer but I have confidence in the Apple brand. Apparently this particular computer is in excellent shape but that's what they all say, right?

I have a PC that works just fine so I'm not trying to replace it, just curious about Apples. Apparently the Powerbook has a 40GB hard drive (not much, I would be upgrading that), wireless, and a CD burner. I had no idea that these things even existed back in those days ;-)

Any advice, tips, numbers to look for, things to ask? Why would someone trade a laptop for a cell phone, anyway, it seems too good to be true.

Get the specs on the PowerBook.

I don't know much about the G1, but PowerBook G4's (most of them) are still pretty decent.

not to derail this topic...but help me understand the logic...

why do people buy new macbooks, or new phones, or whatever else, and then sell them almost immediately??

i see all the time, stuff on craigslist "just bought, already selling". please, please, please...help me to understand the mentality of why people spend hundreds or thousands of dollars, and then turn around ditch it within a couple months. i can not think of a single thing more wasteful.....wait...yes i can.....but something tells me i shouldn't mention those clubs here....
