Default Something wrong with Apple Powerbook G4?

Are there known problem with these Macs, because when you go on Gumtree, every second person is trying to sell one. Are they not good, or did Apple release something better recently, and now everyone is upgrading and getting rid of their old kit.

Apple released their "MacBook Pro" a while ago, which uses a newer, faster Intel processor. People are probably trying to get rid of them before they become antiques.

Oh okay, so there's nothing wrong with them, just a flood of ugraders offloading old hardware. Gotcha. Thanks for the reply!

Heh, yeah no problem. I actually had one of them back in November before I sold it and built my own PC. It was a good computer, but I'm glad I got out at the right time, otherwise the sell price would have gone down when they released these newer models.
