A little while back, I posted an ad on craigslist to sell my 5 year old Titanium PowerBook G4. I loved that computer and I used it every single day, but it was showing its age. I had it posted at $800, which is more than I probably should have gotten for it.
Last weekend I received a reply from someone offering to trade his MacBook for it. I thought that he must be a confused Mac-noob, and he had some funky old iBook or something. I asked him what the specs were and he said “2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 1 GB ram, SuperDrive”. Whoa now. No shit, it was a genuine new school MacBook.
Anyway, fast-forward to this past Tuesday. I went over there and did a straight up trade; shiny new MacBook for my old PowerBook. I win.
God bless the fuckin’ internet.
