Default mac laptop

ok im a college student and i have a desktop that i can run anything on but i am wanting an mac laptop for school. now it is only really going to be used for word processing, internet maybe basic things like i movie garage band or something. now ebay has hudreds have older mac's from 500mgz to 1ghz for anywhere from $250-600. if i get a g4 with lets say 600mhz processor and upgrade the ram to 512 or 1 gig will it be what im looking for? is it fast enough to do the simple things im wanting withought waiting 5 min for a program to load? i can not afford a new one so i am looking at the older ones... any help will be good thanks

Default Re: mac laptop

oh yeah totally dude. On ebay you can get a pretty cheap one. few days ago i bought myself a G3 400mhz 512mb ram of ebay for 60 dollars. Yeah and 500 mhz would be pretty fast for a mac. say like...500mhz mac cpu=1ghz intel cpu

here pick some

Core 2 Duo e4500 2.2ghz @ 2.8ghz
evga 650i ultra
2gb 400mhz ram OC'ed to 450
evga geforce 7600GT overclocked
