Summary: Okay so maybe this was an old model, but whatever the case was, my family couldn't use it. Originally, I bought this in an attempt to save money and help to replace the SLOW laptop my family alreadt has. I didn't mean to make the situation worse. I'm not at home and wanted to take care of a need for them without the hassle of buying a new laptop. So much for that idea. Now the only person I heard who uses it is my little brother and thats to play games on.
Summary: This laptop is obsolete. Unless you're building a nostalgic collection of old equipment, or anything else diverting from its actual purpose, there's no way around that. Before purchasing, do research. Note that there aren't any program installment that can be purchased/torrented to update the software. Considering that it's only from 2005, I purchased it not thinking that Apple would make it obsolete.
Summary: The computer looked great on the outside, but was dirty on the inside. I was expecting wear but not grime. Another problem was that wifi constantly dropped. The seller and I are in process of fixing it, but that was a disappointment. Since I had never owned a mac, I was totally unaware that macs this old do not have flash support. Had I known that, I would not have bought it.
Summary: Decent computer, for the price. Unfortunately, during shipping, the 'T' button ceased to function, so I pulled it out and pressed it with my finger and the button worked. Then, about a week after I got it, the whole thing shut down. Couldn't get it to start up again(trust me, it had good battery). Since it was so cheap, I just returned it and was refunded full price.(minus shipping, cheapskate)Don't buy it, just don't.
Summary: The Ibook's software is too old to fully enjoy Internet and my computer and did not live to my expectations. I cannot watch movies, cannot download anything. I only can connect to my email box, and listen to music. Connecting to Skype will only give me the old version of Skype.
Summary: I purchased the Apple iBook G4 and was disappointed when I received it. The screen had a small crack in the upper right corner and would not turn on even when charged for over an hour. Betamacs supplied me with a prepaid return label immediatley and I have returned the computer and I am waiting for a refund.
Summary: I ordered the iBook G4 because the price was in the range I needed at the time. It looked good from the pictures, got good reviews so I decided to join the ship of happy users. Well, unfortunately in my case, I wound up with a lemon. It arrived in it's own carrying case (I didn't know they even made such things!) but when I got it out and turned it on, no response. Pushing the power button didn't work either, despite being connected to the wall with it's charging cord.
Summary: good for web surfing, and playing music, not so good for watching netflix as for as going to any other OS forget it you can't up grade to 10.5. even if you got 1.33 ghz and lots of ram, the problem is in the processor chip-its too lame to support a newer OS you have to stick witha substandered safari and firefox is a giant NO-GO!!
