I have a 2006 Macbook Pro with Adobe CS.

But it's not for sale.

We actually have a Powerbook G4 with OS X 10.5.8 on it but no design software of any kind on it. I would guess they would let it go pretty cheaply though I do know the battery needs replaced. It won't hold a charge. And the F4 key is missing but the button still works (Volume Down).

Hummmmm...PM further details please. That might work fine. Provided I can find a battery for it.
