With all the information I had a couple of years ago, I decided on a 1.33 MHz G4 iBook for $200. I've been happy with it since. Were I willing to spend more, I'd have gotten the more powerful PowerBook G4.*
I maxed out the RAM, replaced the DC-in board, bought a WiFi signal booster (after Airport Extreme crapped out) and added a replacement battery, all for $64.*
I'm very pleased with how it performs with web surfing, streaming video, playing audio/video and all other tasks (iTunes synch, WP and video conversion using AVC). Camino is my browser, and I use MacTubes, Mplayer and VLC for video. I use Bean for WP. I've trashed most Intel code with Xslimmer. I use Fluid for iCloud and other web pages.
All this is to say that there are ways to make this work for you that'll make your experience satisfying.
12" iBook G4, 1.33GHz, 1.5GB, 80GB HDD, Leopard 10.5.8 16GB iPhone 3GS First Gen iPad
