Excerpt: My boyfriend had just bought for me a very beautiful, white colored Apple PowerBook G4 Mac Notebook. I have been using it for quite sometime now, but he needs to loan it for a while now due to his commitment to his undergoing of furthering his studies. So, when on days that he has no assignments and do not need to use this laptop, I bring it home and use it for playing games, typing things, surfing and stuff like that.
Summary: The laptop is okay for what it is intended to be used for. The surf the internet. However, there isn't much options for upgrading because of how old it is. The motherboard would not take an upgrade as far as the ram is concern. It would only upgrade from 512 to 1GB. The extra slot is damaged. Purchased a battery for it from Amazon.
An excellent computer that is also very attractive.

Summary: This computer, like most Macintosh computers, were designed to be attractive and innovative. If you're familiar with Bang & Olefsen high end sound systems you will know what I mean. Designer hardware, and now with OS X, designer software. This particular computer is a work of art and that's why one resides in the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art. This is where its collectibility comes in.
Summary: If you're hesitant about purchasing from this vendor - don't be! A great deal and better than expected Very minor dings - to be expected.Don't miss out - buy now while they last.. Bought it for a family member who really enjoys it. Most highly recommended.

Summary: The model I got is an older model running at 867Mz not 1.67 Gz, which is too slow and the max ram is 1 GB. I think the model advertised at 1.67GZ would have been OK. With the Ram at a slow pc133, this computer just barely gets the job done. It is too slow for YouTube. The optical drive is CDRW-DVDrom combo not a super drive. It was listed it as not fully functioning, to be repaired or used for parts, otherwise I would rate it at even less.
Summary: This is an excellent laptop for internet use when you have a close range of wifi signal. Don't get the product thinking you will be able to run in a McDonald's get a burger and then sit in the car briefly while you check emails. I couldn't get this product to work well from a wifi distance. Other than this, it is a nice product that has EXCELLENT battery life.
Summary: I bought this product to try out a Mac Computer ... Never owned one. Must say I am glad I did , Cant find a better deal then I did with this one. The only dislike I have is it doesn't have a usb port, outside of that its a great product.
