I am interested in buying an Apple laptop, since I have no room for a desktop. I am thinking about a Powerbook G4 to start on since my funds are limited and this would be my fist real mac. From what I can tell I can get either a beat up macbook for about $400 or a pretty good condition G4 for about $250ish. I was wondering on what the thoughts of those who have had both were? I only really use my laptops and desktop for web surfing, itunes, and word processing/excel spreadsheets. Any and all advice is greatly appreciated.
