How do I easily rid myself of a busted Powerbook and still make a little bit of money back?

I've got a 15" G4 Powerbook sitting around unused/broken (bad logic board is what I'm told). I'd like to sell it and get a little of my investment back without going to the trouble of fixing it or selling individual parts. Recently, I heard of a company that you mail the computer to and they examine it and give you a purchase price quote. If you're satisfied with the price, they cut you a check and you're done. If you're unhappy with the quote, they mail it back to you. At least I think that's how it worked, maybe slightly different. Anyway, I've googled until I can't see straight and searched the Meta archives to no avail. Any suggestions would be welcomed and I apologize if this has been covered somewhere that I'm missing. Thanks!!
