FS - Powerbook Duo 2300c

Okay, I'm clearing off the workbench to raise some
capital to pay for a grapite iBook, so them here's a
little something for your consideration.

Powerbook Duo 2300c

100 MHz w/cashe
28 mgs physical RAM, RAM Doubled to 56 mgs
1.3 gig HDD
Good active matrix screen (no dead pixels)
OS 8.1
Micro Dock
SCSI cable (for Duos)
Apple Floppy Adaptor
Apple Floppy Drive
Newertech SCSI adaptor
Presenter Video out adaptor
iffy battery (type 3)
Duo AC Adaptor (brick style)

great physical condition w/ only minor case scuffs.

I've been using this for a month now and I haven't had
a bit of trouble with it. I haven't fully tested the
battery, but it will keep the book running if the AC
adaptor is removed, so this is probably best used as
an emergency backup "time buyer" during power outages.
^__^

I'm asking $60.00 US (that includes domestic
shipping).

For best (quickest) results, e-mail me at:

SHOWELL2@satx.rr.com

Shipping from San Antonio, Tx. 78216
(210) 375-6626

Thanks!

Nice!

Being a 2300 owner (and user) I have to say that is a nice package and a great price since I see packages like that go for like $200 on E-bay.

Where were you two months ago when I had to rebuild my current 2300 from a spare parts machine? Smile

Well can't complain, it was/has been fun rebuilding my 2300. Biggrin

I have most of what is featured here so allow me to comment for those looking to buy this from a current Duo perspective...

100 MHz w/cashe
28 mgs physical RAM, RAM Doubled to 56 mgs
(not a bad start.)
1.3 gig HDD
(Also not a bad start for a hard drive. The nice thing about 2300 Duos is the IDE -AND- SCSI connections. I am thinking this is a high end SCSI drive since they generally got that big. I currently have a 40 gig IDE in my Duo, so you can eventually (and easily) put larger drives in later.)

Good active matrix screen (no dead pixels)
OS 8.1
(Not a bad OS for the 2300. I tended towards 8.6, but you can still do quite a bit with 8.1. You can have as little as 7.5 I think and 9.1 as the highest. 9.1 was not horrible, but 8.6 uses the 2300 power best.)
Micro Dock
(Nice! Adds Audio in/out, floppy, scsi, apple monitor (supports VGA with adaptor)(I am guessing this is not the ethernet type... still very nice.)
SCSI cable (for Duos)
(Hard-ish to find)
Apple Floppy Adaptor
(Cute little adaptor that adds a floppy adaptor and ADB (keyboard) port)
Apple Floppy Drive
(I have found quite valuable.)
Newertech SCSI adaptor
(Converts from the laptop scsi to something like the 25 pin more common connector... nice to have.)
Presenter Video out adaptor
(The apple monitor to regular VGA adaptor I'm guessing...)
iffy battery (type 3)
(Iffy batteries MIGHT be able to be reconditioned with the Apple reconditioning tool, which I have gotten to work with OS 7.5 and 8.1)
Duo AC Adaptor (brick style)
(Good to have.)

I think for about $60 I managed to get a non-working Duo 2300, floppy drive, floppy adaptor, and that was about it. I had to rebuild mine from parts of another 2300 that was given to me. And I was happy with that deal.

This price is quite nice! Enjoy.
