I have an older G4 PB (667mhz) and I am not sure what to do with it. I can sell it on ebay for a couple hundred or put it in my closet for a long time and pull it out in 10 years and laugh at it... Any suggestions?

Maybe you should use it.

ok - I should mention I have a MacPro Quad-core I use for video editing and an imac g5 I use for home stuff - I don't have a real use for the powerbook but I am looking for creative suggestions

Make it into a fish tank? nah....

How 'bout putting iPhoto on there and leaving it on a coffeetable as a photo frame and stream audio for AirTunes?

You don't seem to have a laptop other then this PowerBook then.

I would suggest using it, otherwise sell it on ebay.

1. turn it into a dvr or media center pc - actually that is a perfect use since it is so quiet and can run in clamshell mode.

2. give it to a family member for Christmas.

3. web server - it can also host your time machine back ups wirelessly. attach an external hd and get an N card for it.

4. use it around the house - with screen sharing into your imac.

5. have it run folding 24/7

Could always use it as your digital cookbook. I keep a Powerbook G3 in the kitchen.
