Took a chance on something off the bay, since I was wanting to give mac a try due to stability, so I picked up an ibook. The "chance" part of it was, while a power seller with good feedback, they knew very little about it. No processor speed listed, and just a "guess" on hdd spec. It seemed to look like the newer models, and it stated it had 384 mb of ram, and the USB ports, which led me to think it might be worth rolling the dice on being a fairly current one. About $525 later, it should be on it's way to me now. This has OS 9.1, and I know zero about it. How do you look up your hardware profiles on this OS to find out what all is loaded into it? I'd like to know Any way of telling from the pics approximate age? What would you guess the minimum processor speed should be? I plan on getting an external USB hard drive to use with this, and my home PC as well. Biggest gamble I have taken off the net, hope I don't wind up a sucker.
