Right, I have a few things to sell that I'm not using anymore, and can't face going on eBay for several hours, so I'm doing it on Twitter and here, if anyone's interested. I can't send any of them through the post, as they'd either get mashed to bits, or I'd get stitched up for postal fees, so you MUST be able to collect from London - I'll bring them anywhere in London within reason! If anyone does want to buy any of these, I can take payment via Paypal, or cash in person when delivering. The items:
My first Apple Mac, an old iBook G4 - white, 12.1 inch screen, 1.2GHz PowerPC G4, 512MB DDR SDRAM, 30GB hard drive (just under 12GB taken up by the operating system), with OS X Panther 10.3.9 installed. I wrote the last drafts of Severance on it, as well as my first Torchwood episode (Sleeper), my Doctor Who episode (The Fires of Pompeii), and my Spooks: Code 9 episode. None of those are included, I mention it partly because you might be interested, and partly so that you know it served me reliably and well. Full specs here: http://everymac.com/systems/apple/ibook/stats/ibook_g4_1.2_12.html
Note that it's a PowerPC model, so it's pre-Intel, and quite old now. It still works fine, with no problems or damage, apart from some understandable scuffing from being used every day, and the ink has worn away on the C, N, M, and L keys (did a loooot of typing on this keyboard!) But is has been VERY well looked after, and is in great condition - it has been protected by a grey Tucano Second Skin slipcase, which is included. The battery still works, but is also quite old, so doesn't last as long as new ones (about 2 hours, but you can get replacements on eBay for 15 quid). Comes with power cable, but again, no disks or other bits. Bizarrely, these iBooks still go for up to £250 on eBay, but I'll accept a reasonable offer, considering what it was used to create.
Next up, is an older PowerBook G4, 15 inch, silver, 1.5GHz with 512MB RAM, 80GB hard drive, and a SuperDrive. Full specs here: http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/powerbook_g4/stats/powerbook_g4_1.25_15.html
BUT, it had a spectacular hard drive crash a few years ago, and won't boot, even in target disk mode. The lower third of the screen is damaged inside too, and the SuperDrive was on its way out before the machine died. However, everything else seems to still work - but I can't tell, as it won't boot. So if you need some parts for your PowerBook, this could be handy. Just in case you missed all that: this does NOT work or even boot. It'll turn on, make a horrible grinding noise, the screen will go blue, but nothing else. It's just for parts - and there's no power cable. I'll be removing the hard drive before delivery, just in case, as I wasn't able to wipe it before it crashed. I'll take what I can get for it.
