While I think that the refurb. iBook are a great deal ...

It's not clear whether you're saying that you've had lots of problems 
with a couple of older Macs running newer OS's or whether there's lots 
of problems with this in general. Whichever, my experience runs counter 
to yours. My friend runs 10.3.7 on a Pismo and a lab of older Macs with 
no problems. 10.3.7 runs fine on my 400 MHz AGP G4. I expect new 
releases for the foreseeable future to also work.
