    Welcome to MacRumors!

    Firstly, mind sharing the website URL? (Just want to check it out)

    Next, what would be the purpose of the computer? While an iBook G4 would be plenty for just simple email/music listening, it is dead architecture. Apple has stopped supporting PowerPC processors in their new operating systems. The latest you'd be able to run would be Leopard. (Snow Leopard and Lion are Intel only). So in that regard, a Macbook would be loads better. Plus some apps (Like Google Chrome) are only Intel-supported. If you can find a Macbook for the same amount as an iBook G4, you're much better off getting a Macbook

    Try Ebay. If not your local craigslist?

    The marketplace on this website, while it exists, is available for buying/selling/viewing after 6 months membership, and a minimum of 250 posts. You must fulfill both requirements to be able to access it.

    No, the marketplace on here. Macrumors. :p.


    If you are using it for editing, etc, you're better off getting the newest computer you can get. The Macbook in this case.

    It's not what I'd consider a "website". It's more like a template for a website, or a blog.

    It's very well designed for a beginner. Now, I'm not comparing you to a professional web-developer, as everybody needs to start somewhere. And you'll get there, with enough experience and practice. For now, it's looking good. Work on it slowly and update it as necessary. Eventually, I'm sure if you keep adding to it, it'll look more professional.

    MIT. The best of the best. Their website is actually built and run by the students themselves.

    EDIT: On another note, you shouldn't use a blogging tool for 'hosting' websites. Especially for customers.

    You should develop websites from scratch, using either Dreamweaver, or simple HTML if you can. And host it on a domain that is specific to that company, and that they own it. Instead of going through a blogging tool.

    Also, how have you not heard of MIT...

    ITT is a college, not really a university. It's accredited, so that's a good thing. Try (If you can afford it) going to a public or private university. Not a college.

    A later model iBook G4 or PowerBook G4 would work for light video editing. No HD stuff though. They can be found for under $300 still in good working order. But remember, they are PPC and can only run up to Leopard. Plus, the newest ones are around 7 years old.

    The first generation of Macbook Airs are still around $700-$800.

    The first generation Macbooks are about $300-$400. But remember that the first two generations of Macbooks are Core Duo and cannot run Lion.

    They don't have names, they're just MacBooks. In the description they will have 'Core Duo' CPUs and their model number is '1,1'.
