I have PB 160 that still works. Any idea where I could post it for sale or who would want it? I dont have 30 post yet so I cant post in the ehmac classifieds. Also have an Iomega Zip 100. Thanks.

It may have value for the vintage mac collector, but none as a practical machine.
I bet you could find a home for it if you offer it for free here.

12 posts from selling on the classifieds? P-shaw! Join us in anything else for a while. Then find your old 160 a loving home.

If you are a true ehmacer you'll find yourself selling in the classifieds for the $ then sticking around for the conversation. :D

Sorry, couldn't help but kid around. Have you seen this site?

Low End Mac: The Mac Experience (http://lowendmac.com/)

Their link:

Used Mac Dealers (http://lowendmac.com/dealers/index.shtml)

might be better suited to your needs than ehmac classifieds.

Best of luck!

Cool, how much do you want to sell it for? Not like I really, really want to buy it, but if it isn't too expensive, why not! :D

Make me an offer. I'm in Winnipeg so shipping might be pricey.

Another 10 posts and you won't have to use the Anything Mac subforum as the classifieds section...

Ooo... Well I'm not sure. How much are you looking to get for it? It's hard to say an offer... cause it's not really something I must have ;)

I'll do some research and get back to you when I get an idea how much others have paid

If you want to post it locally, try ManTek: ManTek Services >> A Source For Mac Add-Ons (http://www.mantek.mb.ca/). It's located in Winnipeg, and the site has classified listings. Might be worth looking into for you. Oh and I have had dealings with the owner and he's a stand-up guy.

I gave away a Powerbook 520c in excellent working order for free a few years ago, I never thought 12- 15 year old laptops had a value.

The PB160 was my very first Mac. I remember how amazed my Windows-using friends were when I had it hooked up to an external 640x480 colour display, and hand-coded HTML on the LCD while refreshing Mosaic (!) on the external.

Ah... good times....

I still have a few 5xx-series laptops laying around, in various states of disrepair. I think they'll become my "fiddling around after retirement" pile.... ;)
