It's an iBook G4 12".. 1.33 ghz // 512 ram // 40 GB
It shipped yesterday so I'll have it by monday.

I've always been a pretty avid PC user, going through a hardcore gaming phase that lasted through jr high and highschool, but that's died down, so as I was looking for a budget laptop for college, I didnt really have gaming in mind.

Anyway, the macbook on apples site looked very appealing but I wsnt about to throw down $999 on a laptop that i'll only need for pretty basic things in college such at word processing, a web-browser, maybe a little photoshop, and a place to store some music and pics.
As I continued browsing around, looking at notebooks from a variety of manufactures, I couldnt get the idea out of my head that purchasing a mac might be an interesting option.
So I started looking around for cheap mac notebooks and settled with the iBook G4 which looks ridiculously portable, is extremely pleasing to the eye, and has better system specs than i'll probably even be needing.
I can't wait to start using this thing!

I have that exact machine. Bought it new when the 1.33Ghz with Bluetooth and Airport Extreme first came out. Only thing I have done is upgraded the RAM for now to 1GB. Great and reliable machine. I take it with me on all my computer and network service calls. Never let me down.

That's the exact machine I had. I used it for about six months. Loved macs and OSX so much, I bought a new MacBook.

Congrats on the switch. I'm sure you'll be very pleased.

What's the difference between the light at the tip of the charger being orange and being green/yellow?

Green is charged. I think orange means the battery is charging.

alright. i was getting confused because when i pushed the plug up a bit, it would turn green, but went back to orange when i didnt apply any pressure.
it wouldnt be a good thing if it was the other way around
