    Wink Powerbook 550MHz (newbie, need advice)
    Hello guys,

    i'm a newbie :dive:

    need help here... my girlfriend needs a powerbook to do some graphic applications like photoshop, flash, etc...

    then comes this dude, wants to sell his titanium power book to me for US$750.00.

    It is a 15.2" titanium 550MHz, 512MB RAM, 40GB HD, 16MB GPU (ati radeon)...

    Is it worth it? can this powerbook runs photoshop or flash smoothly?

    should i go for it or just forget about it?

    please advice...

    Look on ebay and see what the 550 Ti are going for.

    That is not a powerful enough system for the apps she is looking for. Its also too much money considering for 250 more dollars (even less if you are a college student) you can get an iBook

    512K L2 cache @1.33GHz
    512MB memory (DDR333 SDRAM)
