The Silver Star of Apple Vintage Laptops!
This is a beautiful laptop with great features for the time it was created and sold! It is nice when you can find one in great condition that no one has really tampered with, as you must beware of that when purchasing used. I have purchased some lemons...but otherwise, it is wonderful when it works and a great gift to give someone that likes a widescreen laptop or wants to have the Apple experience at an affordable price!

Still Fast Enough, Great Design, Great Quality, Upgradeable, Fantastic BUY!
A real BEAST of a laptop, Huge screen, nice back lit keyboard, USB/Firewire/2 memory slots/ All Aluminum Design, A very industrial/commercial like product, still does anything you need, Try to get 1gb or 2gb ram, Video/Photo/Music/ Facebook/Youtube videos get choppy past 420p FullScreen, but over all if you get one with a good battery you will get many hours of use! you will get more for your money buying something like this, then spending it on anything else.

the unit is the highest, best, most featured PowerBook before the intel machines Apple made. Runs Classic and OS X (Leopard) easily. BackLit keyboard is a real plus. Excellent product. Wayne Bibbens "Welcome to Macintosh", the Collector

I am not an Apple fan but this unit is good and very versital
For a mid weight Apple laptop it has great battery life as well as fast graphics. Only down side is the HD is PATA so costly to replace
