    lol @ p2/300 Yeah it plays Divx if the file is a 300kps stream. you'll get about the same performance on the iBook as the P2... poor on anything worth watching.

    That might work on someone else, but I don't have to believe you right? Just checking :)

    DivX Minimum Requirements
    DivX®

    Windows
    Pentium II 450 processor or equivalent

    Mac
    400Mhz G3 or faster

    but like I said, what ever runs on that P2/300 will run on the iBook 300. Because they are both under spec for doing anything with DivX
