For sale: late 2005 15 inch PowerBook G4

Unread postby Shiunbird » Thu May 03, 2018 12:55 am

Hi guys,

I've had a psychological breakdown and lost the love of my life, and came to realize I have too many things I don't use often. Thus I wish to get rid of most things I don't actually use often. =)

For 200 EUR + shipping (European Union only), I offer a late 2005 15 inch PowerBook G4. I will ship it in a nice vintage (made in 2000) Dell leather laptop briefcase, that will for sure guarantee the laptop arrives safely. The PowerBook is featured in my YouTube channel and has the following specifications:

Late 2005 high res model.
OWC Legacy Pro PATA disk 120GB + mSATA-to-PATA 120GB drive installed in the optical bay, set to RAID 0.
Charger.
250GB (or 500GB, I don't remember now) original PATA spinning disk and original DL superdrive will go with it.

The visuals are B+, nothing that you would be able to see from more than a meter away. The screen looks perfect except something that looks like hair underneath the LCD on the top right corner. It's in such a hidden place that you rarely notice it.

I'm sorry to hear that (about your breakdown and loss). I hope that this simplification restores some balance. :(

Yes, sorry to hear that. Maybe a vacation is in order?

Were 500GB PATA 2.5" drives ever available? The largest I've ever seen (and installed in my PBG4HR) was a 320GB WD.

Thanks guys.

I should meet my grandparents in Portugal in July. I need to enjoy the last opportunities to travel with them. =)

The PowerBook will also go on eBay.

That's what I have in my PBG4. I don't recall there being larger 2.5" spinning drives, but 500MB 2.5" PATA SSD drives are an option. An expensive option, sure, but they do exist.
