*** local pick up only -- Montreal or Ottawa --- ***
Hey, I figure I should probably pass this on to someone else, since this thing has been in my basement for a couple of years doing nothing. It still boots fine, runs OS 9, has a working 8x CD-ROM drive and a battery holding about 30-60 minutes of charge. May be more, may be less. I have another battery.. Somewhere. Holds even less charge. If I find it I'll include it.
One tiny scratch on the screen from a bar of metal falling on it in some now-dead computer company lab back when I first bought it.. Back when 180 MHz was awesome!!! lol. There are 2 retractable feet at the back, to put the keyboard at an angle.. One of them is broken. It's still there, but it doesn't "lock in" so it makes a wobbly laptop. Best to keep the feet in for stability.
Some scratches on top, palmrest, and underneath of course. it IS a 12 year old thing... Last time it was used was during December 2008 when my Macbook was at the Apple Store being fixed.
Being an older PowerBook, it's a bit noisy (fan and hard drive) -- about on the level of a modern PC laptop
180 MHz PPC 603e processor
48 MB of RAM
4 GB Hard drive
8x CD-ROM drive
Combo ethernet/modem port
ADB ports, that weird Apple SCSI port, VGA port
2 PC Card slots
Battery. If I find it, I'll include the extra (low charge) battery
Power chord (not the original one, I had to buy a new one back in 2000)
Backdoor (apparently the door that covers the ports on the back is rare.. and I have it!)

Can apparently use 802.11b WIFI cards, and with some minor hacking it can use 802.11g cards too with OS 9. Otherwise there's always trusty ol' ethernet.
30$ OR BEST OFFER. Really. Offer me something. Anything. If I like it, I'll go for it.
Who knows it might find some use elsewhere rather than just sleep in my house. I'll wipe the OS clean of course and restore OS 9... Can run 9.2.2 with some hacks, but I think it makes it a bit unstable.
From Saturday I'll live in downtown Montreal, and I'd much prefer deal with this face-to-face, rather than find a box, padding, etc to ship it and hope it arrives safely. I'm going to Montreal Saturday morning so if I get no response I'll leave it back home for now, though I can pick it up next week when I come by Ottawa for a visit.
This also means if you're in Ottawa you got 2 small windows of opportunity to get it
