Patricia "A Satisfied Customer...SURPRISE!", Amazon

Summary: The price was right for this refurbished Apple iBook. G4. Had to get another battery from the seller right away though as the one that came with the laptop was basically almost dead. The seller was great and sent out another battery to me immediately. The laptop lived for a year which was fine considering the price I bought it for. Unfortunately, Apple no longer makes Power Macs.
Summary: The computer does not work properly if the battery charger isnt connected to the computer. If i use it with out charging it (but the computer is fully charged) it freezes.Thats the only bad thing it has the rest works well.
Summary: The iBook is usable but I don't think it was wifi ready as advertised. My grandson has to do a lot of restarts to get it to connect and it says it does not have an airport card. We have been able to get it to work well enough for him to get experience in the MAC world. I'm not sure OS10 was ever made for this old an iBook.
Summary: Bought because my G3 clamshell hard drive went bad. G4 has 2 major problems. Won't load Classic from regular source and does not have a handle. Best thing about it is the processor. It is 3 times what the G3 had.
wouldn't buy again, and certainly wouldn't spend residency money on it.

Summary: Pretty much average product from apple...then newer products are a bit more technologically advanced for their time. This is a function of technological development more so the staidness of the product. Was a gem for it's time, but a clunker in retrospect.
Very good for surfing and utilizing programs like gargage band.

Summary: This product is great for surfing the web and using for programs like the garage band when you need a secondary recording. It's features like size and buttons are nice. How the buttons are close together and the screen makes this laptop as mobile as possible. It's really a decent computer for the price you'd spend on a cheap laptop now-a-days.
Well built sold feeling computer compared to my Toshiba or IBM laptop.

Summary: If you are looking for a basic laptop to use for checking emails and surfing the web then this might work out for you. Facebook will probably disappoint if you are into playing games as they will not function because the Power PC hardware is no longer supported by Apple and none of the newer software will run on it.
Summary: This computer is great for the basics. What I mean by that is the internet speed runs good but watching videos it will lag occasionally. Nice size and easily portable. Great sound quality. I would say this is a "get's the job done" type of computer.
It's good for basic word processing and browing the internet.

Summary: It's not that bad of a computer but it does have it's limit when it comes to flash, but it's good enough for basic browsing and typing up papers. I like the fact that It's smaller then most laptop but dislike the fact that it's difficult to grip.
