    Not so easy for the specific model.

    That is why I am asking for some extra help in here as well.

    In Greece where I live those items are rare as hell.

    You would come across PBooks but not the HiRes models, for the same reason I have posted a similar topic when I was searching for a PBook.

    I was not so lucky with this - too long story to post it here- but I am not giving up wanting to have my first MorphOS portable machine on time for the 3 release.....

    And OK I am a little disappointed. I have been reading that you can get Powerbooks for deadly cheap prices. But this is is a myth I guess. Have seen those machines sold for $700 -on used Mac shops-. Have found prices for out of stock Logic boards to be 345 GBP -two random examples-. Have paid 450 GBP for a HiRes PBook -ebay-, found a cheaper one locally -300 euros- so sold the other one to take back some money. Got the second one, on an attempt to open it to do some upgrades I have found that the keyboard connector was almost broken -it was anyway a matter of time for this connector to break I guess, even if I kept the machine closed....-, so I ended up with a totally broken connector. New logic board is the only solution due to a technician on local Mac Service. So I am trying to find a new affordable one or a new cheap PowerBook. Perhaps I do not know where to look but anyone around here can have an opened eye for me. Yeah I know it would be much more difficult to find someone to fix this mobo and perhaps more costly. So I am after a replacement one or a new machine. Would first go for the replacement mobo but a new machine in a reasonable price would probably be an alternative.

    Any kind of help or suggestions especially from those of you who have somehow -any type of- connections to those "low priced" machines -if any- would be great.

    I do not know perhaps they cost much cheaper in France, Germany or Belgium.... -for example-...

    will go on searching as well....


    To find a CSPPC for my 4k back on the day was less pain :)

    Yeah I have checked this one as well. They are out of stock. I have placed my email in order to get notified for re-stock. This is a great price. I wish I could find one in this price :)

    I have also found one logic board from UsedMac.inc in US. The total cost is 370 USD including postage. It is way to expensive but if it is my last solution I am going to go for it.

    Prices highly depend on place where the hardware is sold. Here (in Poland) you can get easily an used MorphOS compatible PowerBook for around 600 PLN (190 USD). Prices dropped much after Mac OS X 10.7 release - Example. I got myself a powerbook5,6 for 175 PLN (55 USD), with a broken matrix and overally far away from a perfect visual shape. Used 1280x854 matrix costs 100 PLN (30 USD).
