  • Summary: I've never owned an apple product before. All of the apple loyalty made me curious. This laptop was well within a price to experiment.While fairly out of date, for example, I cannot access my provider email due to the low level of safari,yahoo email is doable, there's a version of open office that works on this old machine,and I have gotten to have a look at imovie software.

It was in very good cosmetic condition

Joseph M. Seda, Amazon

  • Summary: It was not a 1.67 GHz but a much older .867 GHz model, with a max of 1 GB ram rather than the 2GB, the 1.67 can be upgraded to, so OS 10.5 runs slow and videos are slow and jittery. I would not have bought it, if I had know, but kept it any way because of the price. It can be used for office, email, and some browsing. It was in very good cosmetic condition. The screen is washed out but good detail. and no obvious bad pixels.

Okay for the price

captainchaos55, Ebay
7 May 2014
  • 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.

kmarimage, Ebay

  • 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.

The model I got is an older model running at 867Mz

Joseph M. Seda, Amazon
7 March 2014
  • 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.

Great laptop for it's age!

consumer2buy, Ebay
6 March 2014
  • 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.
