For those that care, I have managed to bag a 1GHz Tibook for £45 on eBay . The machine came with 1GB Ram and a 250GB HDD, meaning that it is essentially maxed out. I have already installed Leopard, which runs quite well considering the reputation it has gained for being a bit of a resource hog. I also managed to install OS 9 on a separate partition, which is great for running a few classic games! Cosmetically, the machine is in almost perfect condition despite being 12 years old. The line running down the screen is a shame, but I guess you get used to it as you use it. I do have a couple of questions however. 1) USB 1.1 is killing me. I understand that you can add USB 2.0 through the PC Card bus, but are there any specific brands to buy from that support OS X? Or do most generic ones from eBay work? 2) The AirPort card in the laptop hardly supports any modern wireless networks, meaning I have yet to actually surf the web on this thing. If I buy a cheap USB Wifi adapter and place it in the USB 1.1 hub, how much of a bottleneck am I going to get? Will range be compromised as well as speed? Thanks guys.
