    Use it for internet surfing, e-mail, music, photos, and older games written for PPC architecture (if you can still find them).

    Also...update it to the latest OS version (10.5.8) that it can run (if it's not running it already). AND...max out the ram.

    Go out and purchase Starcraft, Diablo 1 & 2, and Warcraft 2. Not you have a sweet machine for running older classic games.
