Two in One Week! Merry Christmas!

Recommended Posts

So, I walked into my local thrift store last Saturday, and I spotted it from 50 feet away - a 17" Apple Studio Display... one of the clear plastic LCD models with the ADC connector.  The tag said $25 and I said, "You're coming with me."  I always liked the design of these... all that swoopy clear plastic and that neat kickstand in the back.  Not everyone's cup of tea, I know (especially the ADC part), but a real find for me.

 

A few days later on eBay, I bid on a Titanium Powerbook G4 that looked like it was in good condition, working, was advertised to be lightly used and in the original box.  $45 won the auction - the Powerbook arrived last night.  It turns out that it is in fabulous condition - a scuff here and there is all there is to suggest that anyone used this at all.  It included the original box and packaging and the AC adapter... it is a 550 Mhz model with upgraded RAM, and 10.4.11 Tiger with all necessary updates installed.  Again, this may just be me, but I love the design of these TiBooks.  I remember watching Steve Jobs do his "One more thing..." intro of the TiBook back in the day.

Congrats!  The studio displays are some of my new favorites as well.  A year back, it seemed that CL had a new one (within a few hours or less of driving distance) every few months and they were cheap, too.  Then they just kind of dried up.  I think they are kind of a requirement if you have the MDD or a Cube, or anything else that makes use of ADC.  That's a nice price for the TI PB.
