For everything except games it would be OK. The PowerBooks are outdated now and won't play any new 3D games. They also run on the PowerPC processor which is rapidly becoming obsolete. For gaming performance you will need something with a dedicated graphics card, which would mean either a MacBook Pro or a current generation MacBook. I would also strongly recommend against buying any PowerPC based Mac at this point.
QUOTE Thanks
