With the onset of the further $100 student discount from Apple over the next couple of weeks, I have decided to get a 12" PB to use for a while. I am going to give my iBook to my parents (and a blessing that this will become their "switching" motivation). My father is interested in using this machine for GarageBand. Since I do not have iLife 04 or 05 on this machine (the iBook from my signature), I was wondering how well it would run. I can get iLife 05 easily enough with my student discount, so acquiring the software isn't a problem. But I am concerned that this laptop (when equipped with a USB input device) may be slow for my father's music creation needs. Please let me know of your experiences of running GarageBand on G3 systems, particularly the iBook. I thank you in advance for your help and advice. Also if there are any specific products I should look into, I'd be glad to hear of the recommendations.
