I am considering purchasing an iBook G3. I plan on buying a brand-new top of the line PowerBook when they receive the intel processors next year (June/July). But for the time being I thought that I should buy a used iBook G3 to use till the new PowerBooks come out. It will mostly just be used to run M$ Office (mainly Word and a little Excel). I am thinking about bringing it with me to class to type notes and using it on the road when I travel. Here is a link to the one that I was thinking about buying- http://www.powermax.com/cgi-global/generate_css_temp.cgi?p=c-u58708 The Specs are as follows: 12.1 iBook G3 800MHz PowerPC Processor 256MB RAM (expandable to 640MB) 30GB HDD CD-ROM running both Mac OS 9.2.2 and 10.2.4. price- $519 Does this seem like a good deal? Will the iBook perform decently or will it be too slow to enjoy? Would I be better off waiting till the new ones come out? Thanks for the input and advice.
