Get a netbook. Here's why:
-They cost nearly the same (if not cheaper) than a 2-3 year old 2nd hand iBook.
-iBooks are thick and heavy compared to the average ultraportable.
- The later iBooks were plagued with logic board problems
-Ram upgrades + Battery replacements for the old machine are harder to come by.
-Tiger? maybe. Leopard? I dunno.
This arrived yesterday.
There's something familiar about the packaging.
It runs on XP though
