post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So, I was recently given a broken macbook for keeps by a friend because it wouldn't charge. Opened it up, and the internal connector for the charger port to the logicboard was loose. So now I've got a fully functional mac on my hands.

-Great condition, one scatch on the LCD, and normal use scuffs on the case
-OSX 10.4.11
-1.42Ghz PPC
-512MB built-in Ram
-Battery lasts about 5 hours
-60GB HDD

So, I'm wondering, what could I get for this thing on:
OCN
Craigslist
Ebay

Also, if I were to include a ram upgrade to 1.5GB, how much more could I get?

I would think a little lower on it seeing as some used fual core macbooks would go for this sometimes but good starting point .

Bump, I can upgrade the ram to 1.5G for 40 bucks. But I don't know if that'd be worth it in terms of resale value, thoughts?

i wouldnt do it, it just doesnt make sense to spend 1/4th of the g4's worth on ram and most wont really care as theyd just do it themselves also its gonna make yours look more expensive comapred to others because most wont know it has the extra 1.5gb
