As above,absolutely unmarked,last of the 12" powerbooks before,the size was increased to 15" macbook pro's,owned by me since new,unfortunately box & receipts went in a house move.

1.25gb RAM (max)
40gb HDD(easy) upgrade if needed
Runs latest release of leopard with no problems.

2 brand new original batteries boxed with receipts still under applecare(cost £160)

Ideal laptop for surfing,email,photo editing,itunes etc,can still hold its own against some of the new windows laptops!

airport card is fitted and works perfectly as is bluetooth,new batteries give 3-4 hours of time each depending on what you are doing

Does this have an illuminated keyboard? Pretty sure all 1.5 G4's did but just like to check. Looking for any trades at all? 360 Elite or a white MSi wind running OSX?

And when you say 2 brand new batteries boxed, does that mean an old one in the laptop plus the 2 new ones or 2 in total? Thanks
#8
no illuminated keyboard,think this was only in the new macbook pros,2 batts in total as old was only held 30 mins charge,so went in the bin.

may be interested in the wind,can you send full details inc pictures please,also looking for a 32gb touch
#9
The wind is a U100, UK Supplied 2 months old so 22months remaining as they come with 2 year warranty from MSi. Its in full white and running OSX leopard. 120GB HD, 1.6 atom, wifi, bluetooth. Comes complete with slip case and all original packaging. Heres the only photo I have of of it (taken a few weeks ago, but its still in same condition). I can take some photos tomorrow afternoon with username etc if you are interested. Do you sometimes trade on AVforums? The name rings a bell ( I am NewBeetle off there BTW).

#11

I would guess so, but the custom install of OSX (msiwindosx86.iso) doesn't have iphoto as part of it, so not sure where you can just download iphoto seperately? I use it for a bit of sofa surfing and watching the odd avi on. Runs pretty well.:thumbsup:
#14
thanks,couple of final questions...will software update work without issues...? also is it possible to have it dual boot with xp?(probably will never use,but just in case)

would like a clean install on both if possible

thanks

Software update: I believe you have to install certain kexts etc to get stuff working again. Hence why I have left it on 10.5.4 as nothing really worth me upgrading for.

Its possible to have dual boot, but you would need a USB DVD drive to re-install XP which I don't have.

does the wifi/headphones work ok,as I believe there were issues with this?

straight swap I assume?

You have to download a little application to manually switch between headphones and speakers. I have not done this as I only use on the sofa for a quick surf. Straight swap was what I had in mind. Do you ever get any further north? I am in Barrow-in-Furness.
#19
to the OP - you can do this mod with an advent 4211, and if you go for the C model, its only about £220 - and its the same as a Wind, just Advent rebranded

Yes has the correct wifi driver and it just boots up with osx and auto connects to my wireless network. You just close the wifi window once its connected to your network. (it does not get recognised as airport but just works without you having to click connect or anything)

I am not willing to add any money to the deal though. Let me sleep on it (check with the boss as she had a bit of a face on her when I said it might be going). If the powerbook sells in the meantime no worries.:thumbsup:

Will let you know one way or the other :thumbsup:
#25
Thought I would let you know sooner rather than later as just had a chat with her. The whole reason she had a face on her was she is planning to buy me a new Unibody Macbook Pro for my birthday in June, and guess who just spoiled the suprise:whistling:

So not much point in me getting the powerbook, many apologies and I am sure will sell/trade it soon enough its a decent price for a very nice machine.
