first is this real? 768 megs RAM!, and isit worth $180; Edit: DOH it is a Powerbook G4 Titanium Pro Tools Machine
very nice 667 mhz machine, 768 megs ram, good battery and display has fresh install leopard ilife, ms office, and pro tools 7.3 includes 45 watt power supply clean

I gues it's three questions, is this HD worth it $60 to build and external? I'm not too sure on the 300-3.0Gb spec
i have a brand new unopened Seagate harddrive that i dont need that is just sitting here. i am firm on the price but it needs to go. REMEMBER: its internal.
It is a SATA II HD/300 - 3.0gb/s

The Powerbook specs confused me because I saw 768mg ram and thought 768GBram, and I wanted to know if it was worth the price. The giy has since removed some of the ram and reposted it at the same price. I've decided against as it would be at best a lateral move for me.

The hard drive, I wanted to know if it was worth the price.

I am considering building an external and that 750GB would last me a long time. I'm hoping to take the two smaller drives I have from the two towers I have, and load them onto it so I have everything in one unit that I can plug into anything.

Is that better?

Yea I messed that up pretty good.
The hard drive is a seagate 750GB SATA II Hd/300-3.0gb.

I was confused buy the 300-3.0gb. I think it means that it loads or sends at 3gb with a 300mg cache? I dunno

It means it's SATA II, 3Gbps transer rate as opposed to the 1.5Gbps of SATA I
