Apple old tech

I'm considering getting a PowerBook G4 however, I want to find one for pocket change ($60 or $70 maximum) that runs OSX Leopard. Any ideas, blog readers and friends? I've taken quite the interest in Apple's old eMacs, PowerBooks and Iphone 2G/3Gs (not 3GSs, the s is meant to make it plural). I think that old technology from a great company can never be truely outdated and can always be repurposed or refurbished when broken down. :)

Reawakening of UMPCs and netbooks

It seems like the era of Ultra-Mobile Personal Computers is being reawakened. The Sony VAIO micro UX (thier little handheld computer with the slide up screen and wan antennae) is one of the top handheld full-computers that is coming up again and I'm seeing many appear on ebay. Many people are also thinking about Eee PCs, OQO Model 2+s and Wibrain B1s again. All these handheld computers and netbooks bring great portable entertainment features and everything you usually find in a laptop but with that power in something that could fit in your pocket (like a purse or cargo-pants pocket).
Also, though I got my Acer Aspire One netbook quite a while ago and installed Fedora 10 on it, I believe that I was a couple weeks ahead of the curb. Next thing I know, hundreds of people are purchasing Eee PCs, HP Minis, Acer Aspire Ones and Toshiba minis right and left.

Though my reviews aren't even close to those of the richer, more priveleged Engadget, I feel a more personal seasoned-user-to-seasoned-user approach is acceptable.

I love my school
