Im thinking og buying my girlfriend an ibook G4. Shes away studying in France for the year and her Compaq laptop is seriously screwed and she really wants to switch to a Mac. Her older brother has an old G4 n she loves it (she thinks its really retro), so i was wondering if anyone knew of a good place to get one cheap enough, cuz i wanna put Leopard on it as well. They're actually pretty expensive on ebay considering they're a few yrs old. ALos, im from ireland so if anyone knows of any websites selling them they'd have to ship to Ireland as well.

P.S. thanks in advance for your help,

Shuffles.

macs aren't overpriced any more, they just hold their value ridiculously well.

OP: You might be better off spending a few hundred more and getting a refurbished MacBook. You can find them from a link on your Apple Store website (i think yours would be apple.co/uk/store (www.apple.com/uk/store))

Can't go wrong, investing in a refurb Macbook. It will serve her well for a long time.
