I have an iBook G4 that is seriously beginning to slow me down. -Battery on full charge will only last about 2.5hrs -Randomly switches off -Randomly closes programmes -It's still on Tiger -Blown speakers -Scratched,dirty,blemished. The time is fast approaching where a new mac needs to be purchased! I'm thinking Refurbished, as other options are a wee bit too expensive for me.
