    Ok, I need some help or rather a few opinions. I am in the market for a cheap book, older is fine as nothing intensive will be running on it at all. I have an iMac for all my heavy duty stuff but I want something portable and solid.

    My 2 choices I have run into in my searching are the following..

    iBook G3/600 256MB Memory, 20GB Drive, CD-RW/DVD, Airport, 12-inch LCD Screen - $609


    Powerbook G3/500 256MB Memory, 20GB Drive, DVD, Airport, 14.1-inch LCD Screen - $560

    Which one would you guys choose or perhaps you know of a better deal out there? I am looking for something around $500 with airport in it, these were the best 2 I have found.

    Thanks ahead of time!

    I would highly recommend waiting a bit longer and saving up some more money(assuming that's the reason you are going cheap and used) and just get the $999 iBook, especially if it gets updated to include 512MB RAM standard(almost certain) and a 64MB video card standard(not as certain as the RAM, but a very good bet).
