I was thinking about getting a G3 iBook since they're a little cheap ($300 on ebay).

I am only going to use it to access the net mobile & as a text editor.

They're kind of ugly and old, but I can deal with that.

Any pro's and con's on this? If I save $300 should I just save a little more ($500) and get a newer iBook (G3 800MHz) the one that isn't a clamshell?
