    In US Dollars, yes, that is a pretty great deal. iBook G4's are fantastic machines, really useful for the low end computing these days.

    lol im sorry $175.00 its in pretty good cosmetic shape only comes with charger and is restored brand new, is it that great of a deal where I shouldn't think about and buy it now or give it some thought before buying? I've never had a mac...

    Honestly, I wouldn't bother with anything that isn't Intel-based...

    Great deal!DEFINETLY go for it!!!!!!!!

    That machine is definetly a good deal! That model usually sells for about $300 so you would be getting a good deal. If you plan on keeping it for a bit upgrade the memory and hard drive. This improves resale value too.

    get it!

    no it won't run SL but nor will a dual 2.3 G5, doesn't make either bad computers. For this price there are no obvious flaws

    Hey and enjoy it. Something that cheap will be a great companion an expensive computer is an investment a cheaper one is a friend! Sounds corny I know but its how I see them!
