Looks about $400 high...

The most recent TiBook was discontinued in '03 and a nice one is worth $400-$500.

Way too high. I wouldn't pay over 400 bucks for that.

Any way you slice it, it's $400 too high.

For the money they're asking you could pick up a low end Macbook that would dust this thing.

For another $49 you could pick up a refurbished MacBook from Apple ... so yes, it's too high.

- No idea how fast the CPU is?
- No discs, but OS 10.5 included? That's wrong. Also the bullets say OS 10.4 disc is included. I would get clarification
- 2 hour battery charge is not 'like new', should be more like 3 hours
- $850 is rediculous. Powerbooks are highly prized, but not that highly. $450 - $500, with the OS discs

Just my 2 cents...
