It is a decent iBook with a fair sized HD and adequate RAM.

There are currently NO virus's for Mac OS X.

P2P programs will run on the Mac. Are you planning on "borrowing" software and music?

Beware of the MS Office download from a P2P site. It has a trojan that could, potentially, damage your Documents folder.

As I said, there are NO virus's for OS X.

So why are you stealing software? Will you be going down the "I'm a poor student who doesn't have any money to spare" route?

Enjoy the iBook, even though you intend to use it for illegal purposes
