Still seems like a price check/sales/exchange thread to me.

Although we are are kind of making this a Pismo subforum.

I agree. It's giving me some greater insight into what this machine is worth and the interest still being generated by it.

That being said, can the other threads I've closed be removed from the Classified's section?

Ok, wasn't sure.

Yeah a Pismo subforum would be nice.

The Pismo is one of those Macs that is still well loved by a lot of folks including collectors. Many myself included think it is one of the best laptops Apple ever made, sure there are faster prettier and more feature laden MacBooks out there but something about the Pismo really worked. Perhaps partly due to the upgradeability in terms of easy to swap CD to DVD drives from the PC laptop world and the fact it's the one PowerBook I have to really work at to kill. Read that as something akin to being run over by a truck.

Your particular Pismo has that darn drive that is pretty neat, but no I'll be good. I have one so someone else should snag it.... beside I just bought a Kaypro II off eBay a minute ago.

CPU swaps are pretty easy, installing an Airport card is simple. Fixing a flakey power plug on the back is pretty interesting as that does require a full strip down of the Pismo but heck once you've done that a few times you can do it with your eyes shut. Well ok not really but it is pretty easy once you figure out a couple tricks to popping off trim plates without breaking them and the order in which it's done.

Hmm maybe a vintage Mac forum would be an idea....

I have a Pismo in excellent shape with a good battery (meaning at least 2 hours full use but could be more). It's specs include:

- 400MHz Processor
- DVD ROM
- 768 RAM
- 10 GB HD
- YoYo power adapter

I also have a VST CD/RW drive and a car power adapter.

The screen is still bright and has no dead pixels.

Thanks!
I think $250 is fair.

Local is a plus, as are your extras, and if you and I have crazy different definitions of condition it will be obvious immediately during a face to face deal.

Thanks lewdvig. I agree. And that's what I'm prepared to sell it for. I'll be posting pictures later today.
