Summary: This laptop is obsolete.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: 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!!
Summary: bought this computer to do online schooling and found out that i have to pay just as much for a new operating system as i paid for the computer because what they don't tell you is that this type of ibook will not work with snow leopard only the leopard 10.5 so that means new versions of java and other programs will not work other than that the computer is nice
