"Still Solid and Functional 6 Years & Running Strong"5.0 starson by FEdward
Pros: Rock Solid Hardware. Runs OS 10.5 without much performance lag on the 1.2 GHz G4 processor. Easy Upgrade options (DRAM, AirPort Extreme, etc). Certainly got our money's worth.
Cons: LImited memory, only 1.5 full up. Cannot load the latest versions of software. Was pretty pricey at the time of purchase. Bluetooth only available preconfigured.
Summary: Purchased this iBook for my mother in '04. Just 'upgraded' her to a 15" MacBook Air and she gave me her trusty iBook back. Never had to be serviced or went a single day of downtime. Had to replace the battery after 5 years. Added Bluetooth capability with a simple USB adapter. Sure, PeeCee laptops are cheaper, but cannot compare to Apple's superior platform or lifespan of its product lines.
