FS: Apple iBook G4 - Laptop PRICE UPDATE!!! £190.00

Issue One Avatar
8y, 3m agoPosted 8 years, 3 months agoFeedback:4 Positive/0 Neutral/0 Negative
I have an Apple iBook G4 for sale. It was handed down from a family friend and I do not have much use for it.

As far as I am aware there are no problems with it. The only thing is, I tried to clean the hard drive for a fresh start but I couldn't because I do not know the master password. I planned to take it to a shop so they could reinstall OS but to be frank I don't really need it so I would like to sell it.

The body of the iBook is scufffed all over. The pictures show some of this but because the laptop is white the picture fails to demonstrate the true condition - I say this so that the buyer is not surprised when they recieve it. However, these are just light scuffs (wear and tear) and there is no real damage.

System specifications as of now are TBA as I am at work and do not have the laptop with me. I can tell you now that it has Airport (wifi connection)

As this was a hand me down I have no manuals, driver cds, charger or box. Just the laptop.

Asking price does not include delivery.

edit - I'd like to add that I wanted to wipe the hard drive for a clean start. However, it has Microsoft Word on it, Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop - among other programs. So if you want you could just keep it how it is.

edit - Price Includes Delivery.

Wow I've heard of bargaining but that my friend is way below par.
banned#5
im very interested, you got the specs of it? any close ups of the scratches?
#6
£150 including postage over here
banned#7
i will give you £160 including postage, does it have a charger with it?
#8
A bit low guys. Check the edits on item description. No charger sean, thats also stated in description.
banned#9
how do you manage to keep it charged then? whats the lowest u can go?
#10
My sister has an Apple Laptop so I use hers. As a good will gesture I will send it with over half battery - to last the buyer until they can get hold of a charger. The lowest? I'm not too sure yet..The closer to the asking price the better.
banned#11
would i have to install the OS on it myself? do you need any disk or anythin for that?

I'm not too sure mate. As stated I tried to format the hard drive but failed in doing so because I do not have the Master Password. I'm not sure what other restrictions this brings but as far as I am aware I can use the computer fine. I'm sure you could take it to a computer shop and they would be able to help you out.
banned#13
so does the laptop come on and work then? using programs etc
#14
Please Sean, read the the description notes. It works.
#15
I'm interested depending on specs. Where abouts are you located?
#16
Located in London.

it will more than likely be 13' inch ibook G4 with a 1ghz processor, standard 512mb ram (max you can have is 1.25GB ram - there is 1 slot, 256 mb is soldered on and not removable but the other 'apple' fitted 256 mb card can be replaced with a 1GB card - at 366mhz, I did this recently but the cost of the RAM is around £50), 60GB hard drive. <-I'm currently typing on mine now, looks exactly the same as mine.

Can hook them up to external monitors (if you have cable, via vga, cost of cable around £10) but the output resolution is maxed at 1024 x 768.

Good machine, nowadays handy for typing, checking email, still very stylish.

Chargers are fairly expensive as they use an 'old' connector, probably looking at £25-40!

There its £29 and its not even an official Apple charger!

Bidders please take that into account.

I hope my few tips helped someone. Good luck with sale.

I have a charger that would fit this spare, granted it's not the official one, but the same MacAlley one in link above, I'd sell this (if I can do it here on this thread - if not mods let me know) for £22 all in. To be honest too I've heard this is actually better than the Apple one!
