my daughter has abandoned a powerbook 1400 for a g3  and a g4.
this has created a pile of very heavy junk lying around, which i can
find no use for (i only play with suns). seeing this message shows
that there are people who want such. this think is heavy. ubless you
are in the colorado front range, be prepared to pay a lot in shipping

it is slow, but works.  so, who wants it. comes with modem.

put 'powerbook 1400'  in the subject line - else my procmail filters
will probably bounce your mail.

:That said... I'd be willing to give a good home to your 1400. :-)
