Hi, first post here.
I am a student with no job, and currently have a fairly modern Windows laptop (Athlon 64 3200+/512mb RAM/40GB HDD/DVD Burner/128mb ATi 9700/15.4" widescreen etc).
But, as I read and research more into Mac, it looks much better than windows.
I want to keep my current laptop, and as soon as I get a job (which would be in a few months) and get some money, I want to buy a cheap second hand Mac but not quite sure what to get.
I want something that can run OSX (Tiger?) and would be OK for general web browsing (using wireless or ethernet), iTunes, etc. I don't mind if I have to upgrade the RAM/HDD/optical drive, but not too sure on what processor would do.
I have seen a couple of the original iMac G3s with 350MHz processors going cheap on a well known auction site for £50, but are these suitable for OSX?
If not, what would be the best to get?
Thanks in advance for any help.
