Arrow SOLD PowerBook for sale, classic black Pismo--awesome condition

SOLD: gone but not forgotten .

The Classic PowerBook G3/400 "Pismo"

It's time to give this faithful and awesome computer a new home. The condition is fantastic. You'll come across Pismos (PowerBook 400 with FireWire) that have flaws, but this one doesn't have pinking on the screen, there are no key marks on the screen, no dead pixels, no scratches, no dents. It's not "new" but you'll see it doesn't look its age.

I've replaced the daughtercard, and upgraded RAM and hard drive. The two batteries don't hold charge but are easily replaced. I'm including the original round/UFO shaped power adapter too.

G3 400Mhz CPU
1GB RAM (in 2 512MB sticks)
40GB Hard Drive
14.1" TFT LCD
PCMCIA card slot
Airport (Original Apple Airport card installed/included for wifi)
VGA and S-Video Out
2 each Firewire and USB ports
10/100 Ethernet and 56K modem
Audio in and out
Mac OS X Tiger 10.4.11

No trades, and my preference is to sell locally: Toronto/GTA.

PowerBook G3 400 (Firewire/Pismo) Specs (Firewire/Pismo, M7630LL/A*, PowerBook3,1, M7572, 1840-1) @

The PowerBook G3/400 (Firewire/Pismo) -- formally a member of the "PowerBook Firewire" series (note the lack of official "G3" designation) as dubbed by Apple, but often referred to by its codename of "Pismo" -- features a 400 MHz PowerPC 750 (G3) processor with 1 MB of "backside" level 2 cache, 64 MB of RAM, a 6.0 GB or 10.0 GB hard drive, a tray-loading 6X DVD-ROM drive, and ATI Rage Mobility 128 graphics with 8 MB of SDRAM in a sleek black portable case with a 14.1" TFT active-matrix color display.

Although each shares a case that is quite similar to the "Bronze Keyboard/Lombard" PowerBook G3 models that came before them, the "Firewire/Pismo" systems use a faster logic board design with a faster bus (100 MHz), faster hard drive standard (Ultra ATA/66), faster graphics (Rage Mobility 128), support for optional AirPort (802.11b), and dual Firewire ports (dropping SCSI).

There are two slightly different configurations of this model. It originallly shipped with a 6.0 GB hard drive (M7630LL/A), and on September 13, 2000, this was increased to a 10.0 GB hard drive (M7711LL/A). The price for each configuration was US$2499.
