What do you want a cube for? They are still fairly expensive as they are almost a kind of collectors item now...

Save up until you have 499,- and get a Mac Mini... better bargain IMO since the processor is much faster than the cube's...

What do you need a desktop mac for anyway? You can always just hook up your iBook to an external monitor, mouse and keyboard if you want a home setup...

He's right, don't get a cube..but actually is there anything the mini can do that the iBook can't?

I'm not real sure why you'd want a cube. I just bought a 1.2Ghz iBook, an external USB 2.0 drive enclosure to put my PCs 120GB HDD into, and ordered an iBook bookend docking station. I'm trying to consolidate having 2 PCs and one PC laptop into one iBook that I can just dock / undock and keep everything on. It's a replacement for my old iBook g3/900.

If you want a desktop PC, the iBook can be used for that, and the parts will cost a fair bit less than a cube. All I need now is to pop a 1GB SODIMM in and I should be set. Total cost for all this stuff, iBook, RAM, dock station, HDD enclosure is just under $1500.
