10.3 is definitely worth it. I played with jaguar on someone I knows powerbook (very similar config to mine), and mine with Panther was so much more responsive. I have the 17 Inch Powerbook with 1 GB of RAM, 1.33 GHz G4, and the 5400 RPM HDD. Definitely one of the best computing platforms I have ever purchased. Also, all those who argue gaming, there really isn't much difference anymore. Most new games come out for mac, with a slight delay. For instance, you have been able to get Halo for Mac's for a while, and it actually performs equally good on my Powerbook as my desktop. The only reason I am keeping my x86 desktop is for college. Some applications I am bound to need only come for Windows, and VirtualPC isn't up to par yet, although with the release of 7.0, it may become decently usable, especially on a G5. Congrats on your grandpa letting you "borrow" his mac, and have fun. Also, install fink. It will allow you to install many Linux programs that have been ported to OS X (whether native ports, or X11 ports).Originally posted by: Kaputnik03
