Continuing to try and find homes for the toys I have no time for. Next up

PowerBook 5300c (active-matrix color screen)
24mb RAM
500mb Disk
MacOS 8.1 plus SpeedDoubler installed
Focus video/ethernet board installed (dongle included)
AC adapter
Floppy module
Battery has some life, but has not been checked lately

A quick comment on this one. I picked this up used a couple of years back.
At the time, the stiffener and hinges were broken (good candidate for REA),
but a previous owner had removed the serial number, so I did not follow up
on an REA. Instead, I replaced the case stiffener and display plastics
myself. As a result the case is somewhat "two-tone" in that the base
plastics are the original grey while the display bezel is the later black.
The book is in overall good shape, though, and would be a one for a student
or casual user. (If you're looking at 5300s, you know their capabilities.)

I'd like to get $50 plus shipping, but am open to offers if that seems too

Thanks in advance for reading...

I'm interested, what's the battery life? Does it have an ethernet card or video card?
