15" pb, 1.5ghz, 256mb sdram, 80 gig hard disk, ati graphics, mac os x panther with final cut pro 4

15" pb, 1.5ghz, 256mb sdram, 80 gig hard disk, ati graphics, mac os x panther with final cut pro 4 email me at deleted asking 600 or b.o us.

You must wonder why so cheap? I'll explain the powerbook got replaced with my new 17" pb. So basically the thing just sat there in the dust in its original box and I feel a need to offer this to someone with a limited budget. I will accept paypal. I offer many ways to send. I will appreciate any replies to my email listed above as I am currently hoping to rid of this asap. I will be taking questions untill thursday november 25. After this date I will post on ebay. If you are interested contact me immediately do not wait because this is a once in the lifetime chance to own a brand new (almost) power book. Wink

a definate scam.

To all who read this:

Please everyone...trust me. I've been speaking to this person for over an hour now, and it is nothing more then a rehashing of the same scam perpetrated a month ago on the 'fritter. There is really not question about it. His excuses when I tried to verify his story were flimsy at best. He outright lied a few times. This good samaritan is nothing more then a scammer of the worst kind.

By the way, if anyone would like the full transcript of our conversation please feel free to PM me and I will e-mail it to you.

Interesting Specs...

Also, PowerBooks have not used SDRAM for like the last two years, and certainly not along side a 1.5 GHz processor! ::)
Just thought I'd point it out.

I coulda sworn....

That the 15" came with 512MB Ram standard. And that the 15" is max 1.33Ghz. Plus it just came out, so it wouldn't be collecting dust...

Well, I just got done with an

Well, I just got done with another round from this scammer. I appreciate all of the PM's I've received on this matter. Long story short, he tried to convince me, yet again, that he was legitimate. He did this by sending me two pictures of two different laptops. One was an aluminum and the other was a titanium. Once he was caught in this lie, he decided he didn't want to sell his powerbook anymore.

I gave him one last shot and asked him for the serial number of the powerbook so that I could verify it with Apple. This is when all hell broke loose. Lets just say that he isn't a very nice guy when he gets cornered. He cursed me out, threatned me, told me his uncle was a police officer, etc. He also threatned to sue me for defamation of character if I posted anything more on this matter to applefritter or sent anyone transcripts of our IM conversation. I informed him that I wouldn't be defaming him, just posting what he told me and his own words would discredit him...not me. Needless to say, I am not worried.

The funniest part for me came when he told me he was going to send the Maryland police to come arrest me. You see, last night he wanted to clear this up over the phone. However, he wouldn't give me his phone number. He wanted me to send him $600.00 for a powerbook sight unseen, but he couldn't give me his phone number. So, I gave him my pstn number from my VoIP provider which happens to have a Maryland area code. He thought I was lying and couldn't understand how he'd been fooled.

Though I am not worried about a law suit of any kind, I am going to sit on the transcripts of these IM's while I consider what to do with them. In the meantime, I urge everyone here on the 'fritter to be very wary of deals that are too good to be true...especially when they involve 15" powerbook G4's from Canada. Wink

I am going to ignore everythi

I am going to ignore everything else you just said, for a moment, and just point out that your brother told me not to do business with you. Your own brother told me that what you were doing sounded very suspicious. What is your uncle's badge number? I wouldn't mind calling the Ontario Provincial Police and talking to him for a bit. So, you go ahead and try to sue me. I wish you the best of luck with that.

That having been said, how is exposing you for the liar and scammer you are defaming you? How is speaking about something like this in a public forum "talking behind your back?" You call me a liar when all you have done is lie since the moment you first posted on applefritter. What exactly have I lied about? Where is your proof? I have tons of it on you. Go back under the rock you crawled out from under and leave this fine community alone.
