I have a 500Mhz G3 iBook. The build quality on this machine is better than
anything else I've seen in the price range.

The price on the Aple laptops has also been dropping lately and it seems to
have all but obliterated the price differential between PPC and x86 based
laptops.

If you are interested in pre-packaged shink-wrapped software than OSX might
be for you. If you want to explore the cutting edge you want Linux.
