Its a powerPC based unit, basically the cheapest lowest end one made. Its
part of a long term service program by apple due to easily broken power
input connector and case hinge cracks IIRC (either problem and you just
call sos apple and they fix it free, ends this year I think).

I've had them, and best use I can think of is for people who HAVE to use
some PPC only application and have no funds for a better unit. If you could
use something else, you would. Other than that, its a typical nice apple

Power supply and batteries kind of pricey as I remember.
