    Oh The Irony!
    Ok, take a look at this listing on eBay of the TiBook I won:

    1Ghz Powerbook TI (used) - eBay (item 130261484721 end time Oct-15-08 19:20:36 PDT)

    You look at it and you're thinking to yourself..."Eh that's not a bad buy even if it needs new hinges...", Right??

    Well it took two weeks for the guy to ship the TiBook out. In fact, he "disappeared" for a week...So I had to file a claim with paypal...Anyways...I get it today expecting the thing is going to be a heap of garbage, and why wouldn't I? The guy seemed like a total sketchball when I won this and paid for it so why would I expect a nice looking laptop??

    WRONG.
    This thing is freakin' mint.
    Not as mint as the 400MHz TiBook I just sold, but darn close...If there weren't any scratches on the outer case, it'd be right there with it...I mean this thing looks like I could re-sell it on eBay for $500 easy. (Even though I wont.)
    I was expecting a busted hinge and stuff....Ummm...Nope? I don't know where this guy is saying "Sometimes when you move the screen, it can be distorted." ...I've been on it for 4 hours now screwing around with the screen and it hasn't done anything of the like.
    He said the battery doesn't last long...only 45 mins topps...The battery has a cycle count of 62 and when I unplug it, it says there's about 4 hours of battery life.
    Was this guy on drugs when he listed it on eBay?
    Yes my name is Jaguar.
    No, it is not a joke.
    I don't find your "I'm a cheetah." joke funny.

    Well the hard drive seems to sporatically "click"...I figured it couldn't hurt to ask the seller for a $50 partial refund...Never know if he'll refund the money or not lol...

    You seem to have lucked out on the hinge issue. I wouldn't ask for a refund....that might be pushing it too far

    No but really you can just buy a new HD from newegg
