    I would be inclined to stick to Apple's Refurbished computers over buying used. You'll still get the full manufacturers warranty, etc. You can buy them directly from Apple's website. Great deals to bad had there.

    Yep, the Apple Store refurbs are a great way to go. You won't find any Powerbooks there. I don't think you want to buy one anyway, though. The newest version of Mac OS X they support is soon to be two major revisions out of date, and most software now is developed for Intel-based Macs only. Unless you actually need them to run some older software that hasn't been updated, you would be better off with a refurb Macbook or Macbook Pro.

    You could sign up for this mailer which comes once a day. They shop the deals and let you know where they can be had. I've been getting it for over 10 years or so and it's been a great resource for me.
