Well that depends. Are you actually recieving the software or is it just preloaded on the ibook?

Preloaded. I do have a Tiger and office disk already, for my iMac. I'm actually looking for my mom for Christmas. I'd probaby take Photoshop off to free up space. She'll only be using the computer to surf the web and email.

I think that's fair. Hopefully, it has a healthy logic board.

I thought the logic board issue was with the G3s?

Well in that case you cannot really count that as part of the deal. I agree that it is a fair price, maybe a little high since there is no actual software included.

Some early G4's had the problem as well, just not nearly as widespread.

I'd say its a good deal, I had a few freinds with that exact iBook and they had no problems,
