    Assuming that is the Titanium G4 and not the G3 amd the system is new that price isn't to bad.

    I definitely have to vote no, considering that even the entry-level iBook, priced at $999, is a much faster machine. The only thing that Ti has over the iBook is screen size and resolution (albeit not by much).

    I'm gonna say no too. He should just get an iBook.

    I have a Rev. A PBG4-500 and I too would have to say no. Get a later revision so you can use Quartz Extreme. The video card in the 500's are pathetic.
