I often get free IT equipment from my college, as the computer science building I study in throws things out from time to time. I've gotten a Dell Optiplex 780, and a 1GHz Quicksilver before. After one haul, I mentioned seeing an incredibly ugly pink toshiba laptop (that even scavengers like myself couldn't love) and my mom said to get her a laptop for web browsing if I saw one. When I got back to Dublin the next week, it was gone however. Since then I've been keeping an eye out on eBay for a cheap local laptop. Macintosh of course... I figured a PPC might suit her needs for close to free, so I started bidding on a few PowerBooks and iBooks. What I got, is an iBook G3 700MHz for 99c. At that price, I can't go wrong, but I'm wondering if it will be strong enough for web browsing. If not I can add it to my sizeable collection, but I would be happier if she didn't have to use any of my machines to compare holiday packages on... So what do you think? It has I believe, 640MB RAM, 700MHz G3, 30GB HDD. Do you think I can put tiger on this thing and run TFF? She would only use it for web browsing and looking at some photos online maybe. I gave her my old 4S recently so I've got her finally using email and iMessage and FaceTime, for better or worse. She's not very tech savvy, so she won't be doing anything demanding in the slightest. So what does the forum say, an Internet portal, or another useless one for my ever more cramped shelves?
