    Its a great little laptop for specific users.

    This one is for my girlfriends mum who cannot use windows as its too complicated for her. I feel her pain as my mum suffers the same problems. When a pc just freezes and shes clicking, not understanding why its not responding and clicking again, then getting frustrated when it makes it even slower, and then gets numerous error codes because shes caused the program to stop responding. At least with this i know she can plug her ipod in and it will just work without causing the rest of the computer to seize. And she can use the web easily because the wifi will auto connect and she's just never going to get spyware/viruses.

    At 12inches it makes a great portable dvd player for her as well as her internet connection, and i know im going to get a lot LESS calls asking how to do something, or ask why its not responding.

    The reason i say its a user specific system is that it IS outdated, even only by a few years it uses an old processor made my Motorola called a Powerbook G4, which Mac have now replaced with Intel chips.

    The most annoying difference is that the newest operating system OSX 10.6 (snow leopard) just wont run on the G4 systems. I made SURE to get one with mac OSX 10.5 (leopard) which is the minimum needed for the newest itunes for example. Without that you cannot even sync a new style ipod or iphone. Also software such as Logic and Final Cut (pro sound/video software) wont run on these Its just gotta be a new system or a used macbook pro if you want that.

    Also battery life is never good on older macbooks, luckily my seller sent me a spare so i can get 6 hours compared to an entire day i get on my macbook pro.

    All in all these are GREAT first macs/pcs and wont disappoint if you need a simple easy system. be careful what you buy as they get a LOT of use, its easy to end up with a lemon, and youl know about it. Once youve found one, dont hesitate, grab a bargain, do you updates, get office on there and your away!
