    I need to purchase an apple laptop soon and I have the opportunity to purchase a new ibook from the bookstore at the college where my mother works. They're cleaning out their old stock to make room for the new macbooks etc. The price is $600 for a new iBook G4 (12-inch 1.33GHz model) Is this a good deal? I've never owned an ibook (besides an old clamshell) and if any ibook g4 owners want to chime in, that would be great. I just want to know how they handle performance wise etc. Thanks :D

    That's the same iBook that I have, and I love it. For that price I would say go for it. Especially since it is brand new. I will admit though that sometimes I am macbook envious, but my little iBook still performs perfectly, and is very peppy with what I want it to do. I still have the stock ram in there to, so I know when I add more it'll be a lot faster.

    I vote, go for it!

    Buy a bunch and sell them on eBay for 700. It'll pay for itself.

    remember ebay fees come in, you end up getting **** all when selling on ebay.

    don't forget to add that if you get to a certain amount on ebay, you have to declare taxes.

    Just get one for yourself, and enjoy!

    yeah, I'd get it. I used to have one with 1.5 GB RAM and it was really quite quick. You won't be disappointed.
