Don't buy it. In my opinion, they're worthless. (YES, I'm aware that they work) but still, old technology... meh.

Let's point this out,
80GB HDD
512RAM
1.6GHZ

I have no idea why you would want to 'edit some footage' on a 1.6ghz, 512 RAM computer compared to your shiny, sparkly, fast new Macbook.

Oh, it doesn't come with an OS disk so you need to find a leopard disk because snow leopard won't work.

Hahaha you're probably right. Someone at my work wants it for browsing. Do you think its even worth that?

If it's only for browsing, get a cheap PC, really. $249 for an iMac that may perform worse than some netbooks isn't worth it IMO.
