Summary: I have been purchasing APPLE ibook G4 laptops from SOPHIA'S CLOSET for all of my family and friends over the past couple of years and do highly recommend her especially for school agers, or APPLE starter laptop and everyday use. For the price you can not go wrong.
Summary: great i bookg4 in great condition for being a 9 year old computer i am stunned to see how fast its still is and all the applications that i can still run on it. Apple make the best laptops ever and still after many years dominate the laptop world.
This little machine appears to be well kept; great deal

Summary: I bought this product for my daughter to be able to perform her school work. So far my daughter is excited and appreciative to have her gadget. Last but not least for older model this little baby has all the little features perfect for a teenager. We are please with this purchase.
Summary: Upgraded the memory to 1.25 GB, but it actually ran fine with just the 512mb. Battery holds a charge for a couple of hours but I bought another anyway as a backup (it was cheap $15). All the extra software works fine. Screen doe not have great contrast or resolution but is adequate for bus apps. You tube also works with only occasional stalls to load. The OS 10.5 runs great and makes the computer work much better than another iBook exactly the same that runs 10.3.
Summary: Undoubtedly a piece of art frozen in time. It's unfortunate that it's no longer upgradeable. It is what it is but the G4 is what computing was meant to be. The Mac PPC was strong stable a fast for it's time. But nine years after it rolled of the line it's just as fast a PC with a 2.5 GHz processor. No modern advances here bit still can run neck and neck with many new computers.
Awesome little laptop. Great value to learn Apple software on.

Summary: This was a great laptop, however, it was not an Intel, so I couldn't perform a lot of tasks on it. It is excellent for web browsing and performing minor functions. The airport WiFi performed beyond expectations. It is a great first laptop to learn the Apple software and functions (this is why I purchased it).
