If you can put it all to good use – say a small, basic home office set-up (and you have the room to put it somewhere, too) then I'd say it's probably a very nice deal. I still have a G3 iMac that can be put to use on occasion, if need be, and I once owned a StyleWriter II printer and Iomega Zip drive (in fact I still have a USB version of the latter somewhere). Those were happy days! I can understand how some people get obsessed by classic cars. Apple stuff has a similar attraction to some.
One thing: does the StyleWriter have a serial-to-USB connector? My understanding is that these printers never reached the USB port era themselves.
When the Titanium PowerBook was released I thought it was a beautiful machine. It certainly set the tone for what would eventually become the MacBook Pro as far as its looks are concerned. I still hanker for one myself but have nowhere to put it and I already bought a clamshell iBook mainly for nostalgia reasons. I love my white MacBook but it's time for a Mac Mini, next upgrade.
White MacBook early 2009, 2.00 GHz, 2 GB RAM, 120 GB HD; iMac G3 600 MHz Snow, 1 GB RAM, 40 GB HD; iPod Nano 5g 16 GB (green); PowerBook Duo 2300
