Where great old Macs live again!

Today I picked up a 600 MHz dual USB iBook and I am rather happy. I'm happy because I didn't pay a single penny for it ! All I had to do was install windows XP on boot camp for the technician. As a joke I asked for a iBook, he chuckled and left the room... Came back a couple of mins latter and 'Boom', he gave me an iBook.

The little guy is in a good-ish condition for being used for 4 year in a laptop trolley, then chucked in a store room for like 3 or so years. There is two rubber feet missing, a couple of scuffs, the two rubber things on the screen have been picked off and the screen doesn't work in a certain position. Though i can't complain since I got it for free... Can I ?

Sweet deal! Those still go for a few hundred dollars these days.

Nice work. You did install a properly licensed copy of XP right? (grin) Not worth goin' to jail over an OS not worth stealing.

Awesome! Now you're going to have to update the count.
