    $20 dollars can’t get you much. At best, a $20 bill will get you a modest stick of RAM, maybe a used GPU from the mid 2000’s if you’re lucky. What you wouldn’t expect $20 to get you is a fully functional laptop. It even came with the AC adapter, including complimentary Lightshow and fire-hazard. If only they included the H key and some sticker remover. Condition aside, for $20 I still did okay. This laptop is an iBook G3, running OSX 10.0.4 Cheetah. It was a great laptop and operating system in 2001, however the last 16 years haven’t been so kind. Considering this laptop costed thousands of dollars you would think a computer like this would age wonderfully, sadly it didn’t.

    I disagree with the statement that this laptop has aged badly. It really hasn't. I have one of these at home, in full working condition, working CD-drive and so on. Back then laptops were expensive, but still cheaper and more revolutionary than what is offered now (by Apple, that is).

    I remember we got it in 2001 and that laptop was used day in, day out, dragged out everywhere for 8+ years. When I got a Vista laptop, that laptop was still in use and handled everything better than Vista could at the time. Nowadays, you won't use your laptop for over 10 years without anything breaking or needing replacement. The laptop was heavy and sturdy, could handle heat pretty well, had a decent screen, good keyboard, and could easily be upgraded (yes, didn't need to be screwed open to put more ram into it).

    I am not an Apple fan, far from. I have a nice gaming rig at home, but at the time that laptop was one of the only ones that weren't outdated a couple of months after release. Even years after release an iBook still worked great. Maybe a bit slower, but it worked. Nowadays it's not worth using an old laptop like that anymore as you can get newer laptops for a much lower prices (just a cheap Chromebook would do for most people), but the iBooks definitely didn't age badly.

      I've had issues with royalty free Low-Fi hiphop music. People rap over the track and then enter that into youtube's content ID system which falsely flags my use of the instrumental.

    • Siana Gearz

      So the first one is an enforcement agency offering services to SoundCloud-based musicians, second i don't know but looks like something lawyers with a horrible sense of humour would name their record company that doesn't actually record anything, and third has a back catalog of shovelware music, probably lots of these are frivolous matches.

      It looks like at this point that you would be better off investing in royalty free music. If someone flags you for that, you have the purchase/subscription confirmation and license to back yourself up with, and the royalty free music company will be the one whose interest it is to protect not just you, but all of their users.

      I know, extortion racket, but what are you gonna do. Welcome to -Russ- sorry American Internet!

    $20, might be worth it for the lcd display to use with an external control board. De-solder the speakers, might be enough parts in there for DIY projects to make it worth the price. If nothing else you can solder a different power connector on and use the ac adapter to power other stuff.

    I actually have a better model of this laptop with a blazing fast 700mhz G3 a whopping 640mb ram (manually upgraded from either 128 or 512) and a mind boggling ati mobility radeon 7200 with 16mb vram and the thing ran OSX 10.4 like a champ. Sadly it broke a while ago, something about that specific model and the gpu desoldering itself.
    I actually used the old thing back when I got it in 2010, I was so happy just to have my own computer at the time, that it didn't even bother me to watch youtube in 240p because that was all it could handle.
    I actually played games on it too, quake 3 ran pretty well on max settings at 1024x768 and return to castle wolfenstein worked fine at low settings, Diablo 2 ran great in OS9 but was pretty slow in OSX and was pretty broken in classic mode, Warcraft 3 was also playable at minimum settings with the resolution turned down. All in all it served me great for the year and a half that I used it as a web browsing, text writing and retro gaming machine.
    A couple of years ago before it completely broke down I decided to try seeing if html5 would make youtube faster on the old thing and found that it now struggled to even load a youtube video, even in 144p and when it finally loaded it lagged like hell.
