I am trying to break away from Windows like many here, and i might have an opportunity to buy an iBook G4 with 512mb of ram, 1GHZ, OSX . . . I know next to nothing about the Mac so far except it is very small, and it works. The technicians at the store are going to go over it and let me know what is what on Monday. I looked at a few websites, including ebay, and this site to see if I could get a reasonable idea on what I should offer them, but I am stuck. I went to one site and they said it would be $529, but this was in like new condition wheras the one I am looking at is not. If you could please give me some idea on what to expect I am going to have to pay for this thing I would appreciate it.
