Amen. We had some older ones that looked REALLY bad, but ran smooth as butter in 9.Makosuke said:I've run OSX on worse than those. The 800X600 screen is a major annoyance, but past that, they're slow but serviceable given enough RAM.
And they're kinda cool, in their own toilet-seat way. Also built like a rock--everybody I knew who had one said that it was the toughest computer they'd ever had.
Thanks. Everyone has given me some very valuable advice. I am sometimes in awe of what everyone offers here.Whimsy said:Oh hehe, clamshells are awesome! I love them. I have 10.3 on mine and it runs perfectly fine. They are definitely not to the point that there that so "slooooww" that it won't run OS X sufficiently. It runs iChat, Microsoft Office, Safari, those basics just fine. The only complaint I have is that it is 800X600, but I get over that. Mine's a graphite 466 G3, 192 RAM, firewire, dvd. Also, they look cool, and they don't get hot at all like macbooks nowadays... Oh, and make sure you update the firmware when you are upgrading from 9 to X.
