    Hi everyone--
    I'm looking for a pretty cheap Macbook w/ Panther software, and built in isight camera. Nothing else needed, I just need a new mac. I have a Dell PC, and that has no space left, because I use so much space.

    Also, I need it to be in the lowest price range possible, I'm not exactly sure how possible that is. Lol :D

    Thanks
    Laura:cool:

    Depends what you mean by cheap.

    you can get a good G4 iBook for like 300 bucks if you're willing to ditch the camera.

    otherwise it's ebay with you.

    You won't be able to get a MacBook with Panther, which was 10.3. I'm guessing that you mean Leopard though. The best deal you will get most likely will be in the marketplace here, or on your local craigslist. Also a refurb from Apple can be a good deal depending on what you want to spend.

    Most macbooks will come with Tiger OS X and some will come with Leopard OS X. Check Ebay and Craigslist for a used macbook. If you buy from craigslist, buy local with cash and meet in a public place.

    ALL Macbooks came with Tiger or Leopard. Panther doesn't run on Intel and only supports PPC (please correct me if I'm wrong).

    That is correct. I would see no reason to run Panther, even if you could.
