Hey there,

I'm looking to buy a couple of old Apple iBook G3 (the clamshell models). If you have one or are looking to get rid of one I'll gladly take them off your hands :)

Cheers!

I have a few floating around at home somewhere.
I know of 2 you might be able to have (if I can find them)
One is the orange on pictured and one is the turquoise.
Both are running 9.2.2, which will be wiped and reinstalled if I can find them.
Only thing is both batteries are dead and I think I only have one charger for those two.
Let me know what you think and when I have some time I will look for them.

That would be amazing! No battery and one charger shouldn't be a problem. How much are you wanting for each of them?

I have really no idea, I have been looking though ebay and craig's list.
The value seems to jump from about $50 to over $300 for the models I have.
Oh just remember one of them may or may not be missing the cd drive cover.
When I find them I will let you know.
Where in NZ are you?

Ok I have found one of them.
The charger looks like it needs a new plug to the wall.
I will try to find one for you.
I have been searching the internet for the values of them and it looks like these models are between $60 and $80 each.
I am also trying to find a set of install media if you require it.
Oh the turquoise one is missing the cover to its cd drive, you can still eject it because it is a hardware button that is right in the middle of the drive.
