After falling in love with my 17inch 1GHz iMac, I became smitten with the apple laptops....
the powerbooks are far too much out of my price range at the moment however I figured..hey the 999 iBook looks cool...

Anyway after browsing the macnn forums I quickly snached up this deal

3 month old
800mhz iBook
256 mb Ram
30 gig hd
airport
combo drive
12inch screen
+ 10 gig iPod
1249.00 total

what do yall think? I plan on snaching up the linksys 4 port wireless router (which I think I can attach to my regular 4 port router by turning that into a simple switch) on amazon.com for 79 bucks.

Should I buy a 512 sodimm for it? I plan on using it on the road for work/school, working on some minor iMovie things, itunes, wireless browsing around the house, etc....

This brings my computer total to
1 2.5 Ghz P4 (custom built)
2. 1Ghz iMac (768 ram)
3. 700mhz P3 Dell Laptop
4. 800mhz G3 iBook

wow thats looks like a damn good deal...did i catch and ipod in there too??? cool!

about the ram...if your doing minor stuff you don't necesarily NEED the ram..but if you can afford it why not? i have a friend that has an old 600mhz with 128megs of ram and he gets by just fine doing quite the computer intensive things

now all you need to do is get all those computers folding!!! (if you havn't already)
