good value

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

i was looking for a powerbook to run an old copy of a specialized software. i chose a used powerbook because i was only going to use this computer for running that software. i must say i am quite satisfied with the purchase. it fits my needs quite well.

as for the battery, it is quite old and doesnt last very long so i work with the powerbook with the power adaptor on all the time. i am aware that if the power adapter breaks that apple does not sell this type any more but it can be purchased from tekserve on 23rd street.

for my needs i dont need high resolution graphic and digital photography work but i would not recommend purchasing a used powerbook if you are needed such features. i can see at least 2 spots on teh screen that show burn out - mild yet still visible.

maybe the value of the powerbook was actually less than what i paid but i wont complain. it is still a good value for what i need.

Like - This Powerbook G4 was a great entry product for me because as everyone knows Apples are over priced. However, their products work! The OS for this was still reasonably recent being OSX 10.5.8 and the performance is also reasonable. The product quality is excellent - highly recommend to anyone.

Love - My wife

Dislike - Nothing... I mean the G4 ended in 2006! The product is a monument to the peaking of Apple and a legacy to the PowerPC (long live the dead). It allowed Apple to continue their model and improve on the past. Intel PC based Apples? Who knows what comes next - oh ya! iPads and Androids!

Buying broken computers for parts/repairs

Using a computer for parts to repair a damaged one is fun (?) and challenging.
For the most part, laptops are not difficult to repair, once you learn how to open and remove the parts you need to replace in your broken unit.
By getting damaged computers, you can begin to assimilate some finese in taking them apart. Because they are already damaged, you dont have to worry about small mistakes. Big mistakes?...buy another damaged unit. (Mistakes are a form of learning anyway :) Once you have the techniques of disassembly and reassembly in hand, you can disassemble yours.
Trouble shooting begins by replacing parts that correspond with those symptoms which you had : ie) Hard drive wont work ? Check ribbon connector for loose fit or breaks.. next : replace hard drive. Screen went black ? Check cables, Replace inverter board... replace screen.. ect. Nothing works? Get another motherboard.. (ouch.. can you trust what the seller really means when he says "untested" ?)

The hardest part (other than getting a bad part that you use to replace your bad part) is to remember where all the parts and screws go !

And there you have it ! Remember... if your leave (or have) a few screws loose, you shouldnt be playing with electronic items !
Have fun.

Best bang for your buck with an excellent resale value to boot.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

An excellent tool for any business. Light up keys make low light conditions fun and productive. Also great for personal use plus ease of mind having apple support even on these "older" machines. Best of the Best!-
