    Buy it for the nostalgia and the styling, but know what you're getting.

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    I bought mine for the nostalgia, and the styling, more than for the actual performance. PowerPC processor-equipped computers have limitations (they can't play all video formats)...it's not lightning-in-a-bottle fast! I installed Lubuntu 12.04 (PPC version) for free, so I have an up-to-date OS (with updates), that runs pretty fast on this old computer.
    Mine didn't have an Airport card, so i plugged in a Linux-compatilble USB dongle I bought on eBay. It didn't come with a keyboard, mouse, or power cord (as advertised), and I bought all these cheap on eBay. I use it as a retro-computing hobby machine, not for work or school, and I like it! Thanks to Linux, it will run for years to come!
    Before you get one, be sure to do some research first... it is, after all, a 10 year old computer!

    Such a great blast from the past. Old as this baby is, it still works. Not fast mind you, but effective. I love the way the screen moves up and down. such a cool design. Great for kid's dvds!
