    Is it worth it?

    So the other day I dug up and old imac g4. I case you don't know what it is:



    I wanna hook it up to the internet through wi-fi but it doesn't have a card built in.

    I found an airport card on amazon for $32.
    Amazon.com: Apple Airport Networking Network Card (AIRPORTCARD): Electronics

    Is it worth restoring?

    Get lubuntu and you'll have a decent browsing PC. Can't be used for much more though

    It's a Linux distro made to be as minimal as possible. Since it's based on Ubuntu you shouldn't have that many issues getting it to run on a powerpc, just follow some old tuts and stuff

    Eating that much instant ramen is bad, too much sodium. needs veggies! I live mostly on hotpockets, and mcdonalds sweet tea & sometimes some bawls, and perogies when i find them

    @ dont bother upgrading that POS buddeh its not worth it for the specs apple I believe actually soldered their ram onto the motherboard (if its how old i think it is) or somethin like that
