A multi-colored edition Powerbook 170, the JLPGA was built as a commemorative for the 1992 JLPGA Golf Tournament in Japan. Underneath the flashy facade were the workings of a basic Powerbook 170. It was never intended to be a powerful machine but what makes it valuable is that only 500 were ever produced.

Complete System
Mint Condition: Up to $9,000
Working Condition: Up to $7,000
Broken: Up to $1,000

To date, the JLPGA is the only PowerBook 170 worth some serious coin. The typical value of a standard dark grey model is less than $250.
